Do you remember what you received for gifts last year?
Now that's a conversation starter!
I asked my hubby that over breakfast a couple of days ago.
He didn't remember.
I remember what I received.
How about you?

I probably remember more what I gave than what I received ... :o) Now you have me thinking :o) Thank you for the yummy cookie recipe. Love those and your recipe looks easier than the one I use. Will have to try it :)

Lina said...

I love these buttery little morsels no matter what you call them.

Day 3 - Thank you!

Ummm, last year's gifts. Maybe later in the day I can remember! hahaha! I'm sure it was quilt-y things like books...the family knows how to please me!

Beth said...

That is a good conversation starter! Helping people brush powdered sugar off their fronts is another!

Russian Tea Cakes, Snowballs, call them what you may. I call them delicious! I receive a Jeopardy Trivia calendar every year for Christmas and I love it!

Little Lady Patchwork said...

You are making me hungry! Thanks for sharing your recipes.

BTW-I remember what I got for Christmas last year!

XOXO,
Stefanie

Oh, your conversation starter can really stump some people! To this day, my sisters always buy me some type of doll (we're all in our 50s!) Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Martina said...

Great recipe! I still do remember! Thanks so much!

Michele said...

Some gifts I remember some I don't. Or I may remember the gift, but not if it was from last year or the year before. The recipe sounds yummy!

Love Russian Tea Cakes! I will have to try your sister's recipe.

gmp said...

Love these cookies! One of my favorites. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.

Darlene B said...

What a great idea! It would be hard to remember what gifts were received a year ago, but it would fun to see who remembered!

Christie said...

I don't remember what I received, but, do remember giving my hubby a Wii! We love to bowl with it - gets us up and moving. I think these "Mexican Wedding Cookies" are the ones my daughter made for their wedding since her husband is from Mexico. They were really good! Haven't had them since, will make some for my SIL for Christmas as a surprise. Thanks for sharing. HUGS... and stitches

Brenda said...

Cynthia said...

LOVE Russian Tea Cakes....worth all the powdered sugar messiness down your shirt...LOL!
Christmas & men....is it a genetic malfunction, or WHAT? At the risk of sounding sexist, I find most men just aren't "into" Christmas the same way women are. Would we even have a tree, if it weren't for my kids & me? Oh, boy...that doesn't sound very flattering, but it's the truth...LOL!

My mom used to make these every year. Thanks for the recipe. Last year I got books from my daughter and daughter-in-law. they organize pictures from the year and order the books from Snap fish or Shutterfly. It is a priceless gift.

baukje said...

They look delicious. I gave my husband a book, I just asked him and he remembered!!!!!!

Cindi said...

Those sounds terrific. I can't wait to try them. I got a gift certificate to the Local Quilt Shop. Can't think of anything better.

Karen said...

I received a Sony eReader and a quilt shop gift certificate for Christmas last year. Both were just what I wanted! Thank you for the recipe.

Have a wonderful day!

Kathy H said...

Great recipe for the tea cakes. I remember the quilt books and fabric I received.

JANET said...

Recieved lots of fabric. ( is there anything else) great recipe

Gretchen said...

These are some of my favorite cookies! The holidays were a blur last year but I do remember a couple of books I received. how terrible!

Stormy Days said...

I remember the gift certificate to the fabric store which I blew through the day after Christmas.

Pat said...

Love your cookie recipe. Thanks for the holiday party tips too.

Barb said...

Messy, but oh so good!!

Russian Tea Cakes are the first cookie I make at Christmas time. Every year I wonder why I don't make some of these cookies more often. My best gift from last year was a baby bib and newborn outfit. I thought somebody lost ther mind until I realized they were telling me I was to be a Grandma again.

Mrs. DillyDally said...

Hmmm...think I'll ask my hubby the same question! ;-) Thanks for the recipe!

Sandielynn said...

I remember what I received - a sweet Joanne's gift card!

Liz said...

These are one of my favorite cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

DutchQuilter said...

I remember what both I and my husband received last year. I remember most of what I gave other people, too. My husband doesn't remember any of it, which probably explains why he usually forgets to get me a present. LOL

Patti said...

Russian Tea Cakes are my favorite holiday cookie! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

schmidt1016 said...

That's a great question! It puts into perspective how silly it is to spend all that money and worry about getting the right thing for everyone when no one remembers a year later.

Needled Mom said...

These are my weakness too!!!

Marcia said...

This would be a well received cookie in my family.

MoeWest said...

Thanks for the great recipe. I do remember my gifts. One that we get every year and love is a calendar with a picture of our grandkids for each month.

Stephanie M said...

My favorite treats at the holidays!!
Thanks for sharing!

Carol in E TN said...

My grandma always made these at Christmas time.....sweet memory!

ytsmom said...

I remember some. The worst was when I forgot a gift that I had given my sister! (Asked her where she got a particular item)

Cindy said...

Last year was our first year of no job income. I remember the homemade gifts we shared..and the sweet gifts my children gave us..gift certificates to Wal-Mart for food and survival items. Boy did they come in handy.The grandchildren gave us homemade ornaments and handprints..I do believe it was one of the sweetest Christmas we had had.
