She baked all day from 7 am until 5 pm. She is crazy! I know she loves baking and aspires to have her own bakery one day, but I find it hilariously intense. I think she used 6 pounds of butter. Gross.
She says one secret rule to baking good cookies is not to double the batch because it doesn’t turn out as well and it makes a huge mess.
Anyway, the favorite cookie was the peanut butter and jelly cookie (not my fav though):
Holiday Sugar Cookies:
Chocolate Peppermint Bark:
Thumbprint Cookies (we make these every year; they are a tradition, and my Dad’s fav):
Chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips:
Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Kisses (my brother’s and sister’s fav):
Oatmeal Applesauce Raisin Cookies:
Cranberry Shortbread Hearts:
And then there were cinnamon chip scones (like Starbuck’s has!), but all that was left was crumbs.
My Mom still says she has to make lemon bars and Italian cookies (like my Great Grandmother made). That will make 12 different kinds of cookies–for the 12 days of Christmas! Hah!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
