Christmas Baking



I typically don't do a lot of baking during the holidays because frankly, we don't need it around the house.  But I do like to make some cookies to pass out to the neighbors.  This year I used this recipe for Texas sheet cake cookies and they were SO good!  Hopefully the neighbors liked them. 

I also made jars of Russian Tea Mix for friends.  Growing up my mother always made this to have during the winter months.  Every time I make myself a cup it smells like my childhood.


Russian Tea Mix

1 cup powdered Tang
1/2 cup powdered lemonade
1/4 cup unsweetened instant tea
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. 

Combine all ingredients.  Store in airtight container.
Put 2 tablespoons of mix into cup and add hot water.
