A Sweet Surprise!

One of the nicest Christmas greetings ever arrived today- a box filled with handmade sweet treats from my lovely friend, Andrea! She really blew me away with her thoughtfulness and generosity. I feel moved (and hungry!) after opening her beautiful package and reading the note:

"This package contains lots of flour, butter, sugar, love and nuts
-Chocolates with amaranth (Mexico)
-Cranberry and white chocolate cookies
- Almond crescents (Vienna)
-Orange cookies (my sister's recipe)
-Gingerbread man with Xmas tree and 2 Xmas hedgehog
-Pecan nut balls with coconut
-Butter cookies
-Snowballs (with blue ribbon) * you must eat them in one bite!

Everything is hand baked!

Andrea, you should've seen my face...... :D
