Well, I have 90% of my shopping done and all of those presents wrapped and under the tree, so I'm not doing too bad, right?

I have one last shopping date later this week to pick up those last minute items, but overall I'm feeling pretty well accomplished this year.  I did the bulk of my shopping Thanksgiving weekend {by myself, always by myself} and I've been able to pick up a few things here and there since then.

Per usual, we will have Christmas here at home with the five of us, then we'll be traveling to my side and my in-laws during Christmas break.  For those of you that have ALL your family within 10 miles, be thankful!  Traveling during Christmas is not my favorite.  We always seem to run into weather issues and sick kids.

Crossing our fingers all is easy this year.

My girls were begging me to bake two weekends ago and although I was under the weather I knew I couldn't disappoint them.  We managed to crank out three different kinds of cookies, this Soft Batch Christmas Sprinkle Cookie being one of them.

I love this cookie because of it's almond flavoring {seriously, so good} and kids loves this cookie for the sprinkles.

What kid doesn't LOVE sprinkles?

I let mine roll these in the sprinkles, because let's face it that is the best part!  These cookies need to be completely covered with those cute holiday sprinkles, as when they bake the dough will spread just a bit.

Love a soft cookie, yet one that keeps it shape nicely and doesn't fall apart?  THIS COOKIE IS FOR YOU.

They are just a tad crispy on the edges {I almost don't even like to say that, because it's barely crispy} and so incredibly soft in the center.  Plus, the sprinkles give them an added crunch.  Find whatever holiday sprinkles you store has - I found mine at ALDI - they are not hard to find this time of year.

These cookies make the perfect batch, an easy two dozen and package up really well.  I've already handed out a few boxes to friends and neighbors and they rave about them.  Plus, they've asked for the recipe!  Which until now, I had to scribble on a piece of paper for them.

Enjoy your holiday baking!

It's one of my favorite traditions.  My girls love it {while our oldest boy just enjoys eating them}.  Making these kinds of memories with your kids are the ones they'll remember forever.

Merry Christmas!
