Fifth Day of Christmas in July – Golden Hoffman Fabrics
Golden Hoffman Fabrics
I must confess. I love Hoffman Christmas fabrics with gold metallic. I can’t wait for the Hoffman salesman to show them every year. Hoffman knows how to change it up a little each year but I find they are so classic. Hoffman fabrics was the first many years ago to start adding gold metallic highlights to the fabric. They know how to do it best. The reds and greens are always so rich and they make lots of coordinates.
Simply Squares Christmas Quilt Kit
This shop’s favorite Christmas quilt measures 60″ x 81. Kit has 21 strips of coordinated Hoffman Christmas fabric. The pattern features a quick method of putting the quilt on point. Purchase your choice of 3/8 yards for inner border and 1 7/8 yards for outer border and binding. Backing requires 5 yards.
Shortbread Cookie Mix
In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Transfer the mix to a jar or bag, seal tightly and decorate with a ribbon. Enclose these instructions on a pretty recipe card:
- Shortbread Cookies
- 1 package Shortbread Cookie Mix
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Gently knead the butter into the cookie mix, using your fingers. Press the dough evenly into an 8-inch pie plate. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until golden, but not browned. Cut into wedges while still warm. Makes 16 buttery “petticoat tails”.
Make this mix ahead to give or to get a jump start on your holiday baking or gift preparation. A simple, classic and delicious cookie.
