because life should be eventful

A couple weeks ago I got an itch to make up some “Christmas” cookies! I knew the weeks leading to Christmas would get so crazy at work that I wouldn’t have time, and I was SO right! It has just been insane around here but that is a good thing. We are all so proud of what we do here at Kiepersol that we never have a problem working extra hard to spread the word about what we do!

I digress – back to the cookies. So instead of doing a massive baking day – you know those where you have extra high hopes of accomplishing all of these crazy, insanely complicated cookie recipes and then you end up covered in flour with a bunch of Pinterest fails? Yeah, I wasn’t about to go down that road again. So I baked three different recipes on three different days. It made it really nice. I’d bake a batch of cookies  and try a new recipe and still manage to walk away from the situation unharmed. So here is one of the cookies I made that weekend. They are really delicious, light and airy! I love anything lemon and these have a great lemon flavor! Give them a try for your Christmas baking this weekend! 

Enjoy! Xo

In a separate bowl, put the powdered sugar. Take two spoons and make rounded tablespoons of dough and drop into the powdered sugar. DOUGH IS VERY STICKY!

Roll in the powdered sugar until coated then form into a ball.

Place on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches away from each other. 

Bake for about 8-10 minutes depending on your oven!

I had to peek to see how they were crinkling!

Every Sunday night, the “family” here at Kiepersol gathers at Pierre’s house and has a family dinner. Pierre and Kelly always make a wonderful meal and last Sunday was no exception. For St. Patrick’s Day, Pierre made homemade corned beef, sauerkraut and potatoes. It was a feast and delicious for sure. So to contribute to the meal, I made this delicious but ridiculously simple lemon pie. I’ve had the recipe pinned on Pinterest for a while and finally had the chance to make it! It will be a great recipe for summer because it’s cool, refreshing and doesn’t require an oven! 

Enjoy and dessert on my friends! Xo

lemon pie

Ingredients:

2 cans sweetened condensed milk

1 ready made pie crust

Step 1: Take two cups of sweetened condensed milk (I just used 2 cans) and mix it with 3/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice using a whisk.

Step 2: Pour the sweetened condensed milk and lemon mixture into ready made pie crust. I used the shortbread version which was a great complement to the lemony pie. You could also use the graham cracker one too!

Step 3: Refrigerate for at least an hour to set and then enjoy!  You could also use cool whip as a nice addition to the pie if desired. 

Step 4: Try not to eat it all in one sitting! 🙂
