Did you know December 9th is National Pastry Day. I didn't until just recently.
In honor of a wonderful yummy Day, I thought I would share a couple yummy treats.
Oatmeal Applesauce cookies and Hazelnut Lace.
For the Oatmeal Applesauce cookies I used homemade applesauce and 1/2 date sugar.
For the Hazelnut Lace I used Torani Hazelnut syrup instead of the liquor I am really thinking of piping in some Hazelnut Cream Frosting into the first batch of the lace as I made them a little big.
I used fresh local Cranberries and Clear American Zero Calorie Flavored Water (Tangerine and Lime Flavored) instead of plain water to add a hint of citrus flavor.
Kiddo helped me with the baking this morning in exchange for a no school day, what he didn't know was the whole time we were working on these he was reading (the recipes), doing math (we made a double batch of the Oatmeal Applesauce cookies), and science (the chemistry of combining ingredients and what happens)
