This winter it snowed before Christmas. This never happens, except that this year it did. Jim and Joyce always have a Christmas cookie party, but because it snowed it was postponed to today.
I never made buttery sablés before December. The first time I made them I was practicing for their party. The second time I made them was today.
They are the numerous whitish cookies. The other cookies are the ones I brought back from the party. I should have brought more cookies. I only brought about 10 because I didn’t want to bring too many, so many that people wouldn’t want to eat them and it would look like I’d made unpopular cookies.
All 10 cookies got eaten. Next year I will bring more cookies.
It was nice to see everyone. We’ve lived in Durham a long time now.
