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.
