Twelve Days of Christmas Design Tips - Sweet Surprise

I decided today would be a good time to share a very special treat with you 
since I know so many of you out there are already in the kitchen baking up a storm!

And besides, 
what is a beautifully decorated house without the heady aroma of baking cookies?


The recipe came from THE most "Magnificent Home of America"
The White House!

This little booklet was handed out to those who toured the White House this year
to see everything decked out for the holidays. 
(Yes, I was there...and next week I plan to give you a personal tour of all the fabulous rooms)

I just love the water color images!

Each page illustrates a room in the White House and the special significance of the decorations.

The Red Room and State Dining room are shown here.

But here's the real treat!  
In the back of the book is this yummy cookie recipe from the 
White House Pastry Kitchen.
I have no doubt these Ginger Crinkles have passed rigorous taste testings
which is proof enough for me to give them a try.

ENJOY!

"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
