There is such a thing as too many cookies. I am done... for now.
Here's what I baked this past December: sugar cookies, gingerbread, chocolate chip, and almond paste cookies.
Then I layered them in jars to give out.
I also tried meringues for the first time. The kids loved it but I'm not really a fan. Maybe I'll try it again but use some chocolate chips for different texture.
Then went overboard trying to make the perfect whipped butter cookie. Am still trying... then I moved onto chocolate meringues, polenta cookies, and more gingies.
It's not Christmas if I don't make big fat gingies. Just like last year... Although this year, I tried some hair for the girl gingie. It didn't go over too well.
I made walnut cookies for my mom
We don't do food treats at the new school. Maybe that's a blessing in disguise, remember these cookies I made for Valentine's last year? Would have been easier to buy stickers...
We did give treats to Joshie's teacher along with a special card. His friends got stickers, a pencil, and a stamp.
Somewhere along the way, we made some ornaments. We also made some with clear glass balls but forgot to take a pic.
Then the ice-storm hit and we lost power just as these almond cookies went into the oven. I forgot them in there and 2 days later, retrieved these sad looking cookies.
As I write this post, I'm eating a polenta cookie. Due to the ice storm, the cookies are staying here in our house and I will probably bake again when hubby's family reschedules our Christmas Eve dinner.
Hope you're all enjoying your own Christmas traditions!
