I LOVE LOVE LOVE to make homemade presents - birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, Valentine's Day, you name it, I want to make a homemade present for whomever we are celebrating. I get teased sometimes about being a Martha Stewart-in-training (I am not so pleased with this) - I just think homemade presents mean a lot more than something plucked off a shelf. That being said, when the Student Government Executive Team decided to have a Secret Santa gift exchange, I thought I would whip up some cookies or brownies, because who doesn't enjoy some sweets the week before finals? But with so many recipes I have been wanting to try, how was I going to decide which one to choose?! I instead went with an oldie but a goodie, and landed on a homemade Oreos recipe that I've used before and turned out beautifully.
|I am one of the messiest bakers I know - good think I have patient roomies that tend to avoid the kitchen when I am in there!|
|Beginning the frosting process - which is much more fun whilst listening to Christmas carols!|
|The stovetop is not just for cooking anymore...|
|Finished homemade Oreos! My Secret Santa was oh so surprised!|
