The Grover Bakery

Ever since I was a little girl, one of my favorite Christmas traditions has always been to bake (and EAT!) bunches and bunches of cookies and treats and then deliver the goodies to our friends and neighbors. This year, Hank and I made over 34 dozen cookies! Phew! It was a lot of work! I hate to say it, but even I am feeling a little O.D.'ed on chocolate--and thats saying something.
Some of our favorites were the peanut butter truffles, russian teacakes (Aaron's request), peanut butter blossoms, chocolate crinkles, pretzel turtles, toffee bars, and 7 layer bars.

I thought the final product was delicious. Max was happy to be our official cookie tester.

As we were out delivering all of our yummy treats, Hank randomly asked if we could take a plate of treats to the firemen in our town. I was so happy that Hank was demonstrating the true Christmas spirit of giving, that I took him to the firestation in the morning and he hand-delivered the treats to the firemen. The firemen were so sweet to Hank and shook his hand and thanked him for the treats.

All your goodies look so professional only better because they taste home made. Good idea taking a plate to the firemen.
