Wait. What?! 2009 … already … but where did 2008 go???

Okay … well … while I try to figure that question out I hope you’re all enjoying yourselves with much good food and drink.

I had a heck of a time trying to figure out what the official goodbye to 2008 dessert would be so I settled on something old-fashioned, yummy and comforting: butterscotch! It’s what all the cream puffs are eating this New Year’s Eve!

Pictured above are some awesome Butterscotch Tarts from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.

I’m not sure what to say about 2008. It whizzed by. As always, the year brought some highs and lows but we made it through. My family is safe and healthy and with me and I have another year of good memories with friends.

Wherever you are for the New Year, please be safe. Take care and please know that the Cream Puff wishes all of you many blessings, much good health and lots of laughter in 2009.

Buona fine e buon principio!

Ciao!
