Key Lime Angel Roll

12 Dec

Mariya and I hosted a cookie exchange the 1st Saturday of December.  It was our 3rd annual exchange.  The ladies who attend look forward to this and actually expect it.  We even had people that came from KY and FL to attend.  Everyone makes 6 dozen cookies and we usually have about 12 bakers participating so we get about 1/2 dozen of each cookie.  This was even more spectacular because we did have more people participating and the bakers are getting more adventuresome.  Everyone also brings an appetizer and I do sangria, apple cider and desserts.  This year I made a Key Lime Angel and made some french macarons with a raspberry/rose/mascarpone filling.  The macs were great however i think the mascarpone was too soft for the cookie and turned them into mush.  It was a shame because I made so many but the sangria was great!

It was a very festive event and everyone had a wonderful time.  It really brings the holiday cheer to everyone!
