I’m still undecided about how much holiday baking I’m going to do this year.
I want to keep the traditions alive, but, honestly, I’m not feeling the motivation or desire to spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking right now. Maybe this will change as the holidays grow nearer, maybe not. I’m going to take it one day at a time. We certainly don’t need a plethora of sweets in the house, although I want to have my usual holiday goodie bags for our friends (and the kids’ teachers) – it’s just so busy at work these days I’m not sure I’m going to have the energy or time to do the baking in the evenings like I’ve done in years’ past!
I have a back up plan, though, that I’m going to try out this weekend, just in case baking falls by the wayside for holiday gifts. After I try it out, I’ll let you know how it went.
I thought that today I’d share with you some of my favorite cookie recipes. Since this is the time of year when a lot of us are invited to holiday cookie swap parties, I thought it might be fun to share some of our favorites.
If you have a favorite cookie recipe, please share in the comments! I am sure the rest of us would love to try something new!
Here are some of our holiday standbys:
- World’s Best Oatmeal cookies
- Eggnog Cookies
- Chocolate Chip Craisin Oatmeal Cookies
- Mexican Wedding Cookies
- Oatmeal Lace Cookies
- Santa’s Surprises
What about you? What cookies mean Christmas to you?
Oh, and I just discovered this new online magazine: FoodieCrush. They have some beautiful food shots and some even yummier cookie recipes!
