Its been a busy day in the Bowkis household. A last minute dash into town to Waitrose and some last minute gifts.
Then home for that yearly baking marathon!

Mince pies
Petite Fours
Peanut Brittle

Have yet to do more cookies and some brownies. We are hosting Boxing Day this year, so I have tomorrow to do some more baking! To include mini pecan pies with my new mini morsel tray!

As promised here is my Cranberry Sauce recipe. Photos have not been downloaded yet, sorry!
Do make this tomorrow morning, it takes 15minutes from start to finish!

Ingredients :

1 pack of fresh cranberries
1 cup of sugar or pure maple syrup
1 cup of orange juice or cranberry juice
zest of a clementine or what ever you have and the juice

Pop everything into a pan and bring to boil then simmer for 10 minutes.
The pour into jars (sterilize the jars if you are giving as a gift).

Enjoy with your Christmas turkey or in a cold turkey sarnie Christmas night!

Have a very Merry and wonderful Christmas!
From the Bowkis's

    Merry Christmas Anna! Thank you for getting back to me about the international orders for your book & adding that option on your Pay Pal link. Hubs ordered my copy last week (order name Shane Tilbury - Durban, South Africa) & I would like to take you up on your offer of having it signed! Please can you make it to me though as it's not for him! I have been following your blog & the Pencil Lines one for a few months now & am looking forward to using your sketches for some speedy scrapping in the new year! Thanks so much, regards Helen
