If you recall, I previously posted the recipe for Gingerbread Bayou People! This year, I only baked Bayou Boys! My 21-year-old son asked for a tin of these as a gift. That’s easy enough!
And please don’t be offended that they are all naked this year. I forgot to buy their clothing!
These are the famous sweet potato pies that I only bake once a year. That’s because I learned the recipe from my Houma Indian in-laws, and they use no measurements. It was a very hands on experience, and the “recipe” makes about 10 pies!!!
Ten pies gets to be a back-breaking chore when you have lots of other things to do the same day. So, I did my best to reduce the recipe, and I came out with two pies and two turnovers. We’ll see how they taste tonight. One of the pies is for my 23-year-old son–that’s what he asked for as his gift.
And the younger boys made the sugar cookies. Again, I forgot to get colored sugar or food coloring, and red was all we had. Sorry, no green this year!
That’s my holiday baking for this year folks. Now all I have to do is make all the finger foods for tonight’s family get together at the newly-rented home of our two oldest sons. That should be interesting!!!
Here’s wishing you some peace and quiet . . . .
That’s what they did while I baked! It really is a dog’s life, is it not?
Happy Holidays from down the bayou, cher!
