On the Eleventh Day of Christmas

Good day, and welcome to our second last day of Christmas with the TransCanada Etsy Team.

Today, we meet one final member, paisleybaby.

Paisleybaby is the mother-daughter team of Dianne and Maria. Hailing from the Montreal area of Quebec, they are the creators of fabulous fabric accessories for babies and Moms.

Maria shares the traditions that she has begun with her own young family.

As I mentioned during last year's promo, my children, husband and I are creating our own family holiday traditions, as my parents and I had during my childhood. After searching for a very special and unique Advent Calendar, I decided to have one made by fellow TransCanada Etsy team member rikrak. It is gorgeous and everyone in my family loves it!

We've made these delicious cookies for five years so I think they qualify as a tradition! They have a rich, dark chocolate flavour combined with peppermint candy canes are super easy to make. Mint Chocolate Truffle Cookies 6 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1-3/4 cups flour 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/3 cup crushed candy canes MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until well blended after each addition. Add combined flour and baking powder; mix well. (Dough will be very soft.) Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. HEAT oven to 350°F. Roll heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on greased baking sheets. BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until tops are set. (Do not overbake.) Immediately sprinkle with crushed candy. Cool 1 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Thanks for sharing.
