I’m not a super-fan when it comes to Christmas. Shopping annoys me (every year, the list gets whittled down more and more), I hate wrapping, the tree is fine but it’s annoying to get it up and down, and I do the bare minimum when it comes to decorating. The one thing I go balls to the wall on: COOKIES.
We don’t even go to any parties or send out platters, but I still make a good 18 dozen cookies, because I crave variety and I don’t feel like scaling the recipes. Besides, they’ll freeze just fine (to the point that we often end up eating the cookies up until Thanksgiving).
Anyway, my plan this year:
- Chocolate chip
- Oatmeal bars
- Gingerbread men
- Dream bars
- Salted chocolate caramel
- ??? (There’s been a few requests, but we’ll see how much energy I have left)
I keep all of my recipes on Google Drive (public folder here), because once the blog with a beloved recipe disappeared for a few weeks. The only exception is the salted caramel ones above, but I just used the recipe on the back of the Hershey’s Salted Caramel chips bag (sidenote: They were shockingly delicious).
So, are you making cookies? What are you making? Any recipes you’d care to share?
