Need a new Christmas cookie?
You're in the right place. Grab the sugar and flour and let's get to work!
Each year my high school girlfriends and I get together and do a massive holiday baking session. I've been friends with these girls my whole life, literally since kindergarten. We know each others ins and outs and this tradition is one of our favorites.
Here's the run down.
We have Jess, our hostess. You see we just tell her we're descending upon her house every December to do this because she has the best kitchen. She doesn't mind.
Then we have Jenelle, who would rather have a root canal than bake, but she puts those feelings aside for one afternoon to please all of us.
And Missy, she's the decorator of the bunch, having worked at a bakery and chocolate store for years. She makes us all look bad.
Lastly, Tiff. She rolls in flustered, usually un-showered, often missing crucial ingredients and no doubt will have to run to the store in the middle of a recipe.
You see, we're not perfect but we all get each other and we have a great day baking. Mostly laughing. Often getting on each other's nerves, but it's fun. In fact this post is for them. I'm guessing they have no idea what they are baking this year and with a couple weeks to spare, here is a list of 22 for them.
You're welcome girls.
Did you find one that you like? Want to bake? Want to gift to someone during the holidays? I sure hope so.
I personally really enjoy giving edible gifts at Christmas time, even if it is a just a small plate with four homemade, delicious, mouth-watering looking cookies on it. People really do enjoy them. They know they are from the heart and that you took time to make them.
Stay tuned as I have more gorgeous looking holiday cookies on tap during the month of December, as well as some holiday baking giveaways. You don't want to miss out!
