Advent means Waiting
Adventus is Latin for "coming". We are waiting for expectantly for Christmas to come...
Cookie-baking begins. I haven't made these since I was in high school - My mother's Sesame Thins...
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 jar sesame seeds (from spice section in grocery store)
Whip together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Gradually add dry ingredients. Chill for 1 hour. Roll into small balls and coat with sesame seeds. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
And a visit from two of my little elves.
