I’ve been baking cookies for the past 8 years now and last year was the first Christmas that I didn’t bake (I think I baked the year Holly was born but I’m not sure, I might not of, it’s all a blur). I was so sorry that I didn’t so I made sure this year I did. I usually stress about getting it done but I didn’t. I enjoyed the process and I especially enjoyed Holly helping me. She was such a good helper and very eager. Here are some pictures of her baking………..
Peanut Butter Blossoms……..yum yum!!
Cinnamon Oatmeal yum yum……
OK I love Peanut Butter and Cinnamon, can you tell?
Thumbprint Strawberry Shortcake Cookies yum yum!! This year I made them much bigger than I usually do and I put the icing on them too (not in this picture). After I tested one (I have to make sure they are good before I give them to my guests) I remembered why I don’t usually put on the icing… it makes them much sweeter. I will make a note on the recipe for next year.
Don’t ask about these because they will NOT be on the cookie tray. Something new I tried and it didn’t work out so well. The picture looks like nice yummy chocolate cookies, right? WRONG they are chocolate but they aren’t yummy. Perhaps I did something wrong? I’m not sure.
OK moving on….
And finally my cookies, all done! (The only one I don’t have a picture of are the Butter Balls yum yum) I may make more before Wednesday. Not that I don’t have enough because I have plenty. But I want to make at least 1 more kind, so we’ll see.
Now I need to go and walk on the treadmill for 5 hours to make up for all the taste testing that’s been going on the last few days. LOL
