Merry Christmas


We had a small group at our Christmas Party, but you would never have guessed how few we were by the joyful noise we made! The Program Committee is to be commended for the imaginative games that kept the evening moving along.

And the food – oh my! I collected only a few recipes but it isn’t too late to hand them to me. I’d love to have the recipes for everything, but a couple of highlights come to mind – the “Best Ever Fudge” and the “Santa Hats”. I have posted some recipes on our Recipes page.

I’ve also posted photos for the 10” square class and the Out of Town Teacher class. Check out the Class Supply Lists and Descriptions.

 

Quilt Across Canada Challenge (63,360 inches = 1 mile)

As of December’s report, we have accumulated a total of 9,452 inches.

 

I hope you have time over the holidays to sit back and reflect on all the wonderful projects you have completed, worked on or contemplated in the past year.

Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas everyone – here’s the recipe for the Santa Hats from our Christmas party. I cheated and used the little “two bite brownies” that you can buy – they are the perfect size! Enjoy!

    Barb K

    Santa Hat Brownies Yields 12-16 brownies

    Ingredients: 1 pan of your favorite brownies, cooled and cut into desired size and shape (I used a round cutter) 12-16 small strawberries, cleaned and hulled vanilla-mascarpone buttercream (recipe below)

    Mascarpone Buttercream Ingredients: 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature 2-1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract pinch of salt

    Method: Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and continue beating until smooth. Add more sugar, if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness.

    To assemble, pipe a ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie. Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place it upside down on each brownie, pushing slightly to secure in place. Top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of buttercream to finish the santa hat.
