    I love baking cookies for Holiday gifts. I started yesterday, but then I came down with a nasty cold! Argh! [​IMG] Don't know if people would want to recieve cookies from a sick person LOL! (So alas, I just may have to eat them all myself, what a burden! [​IMG] ) I decided on 10 kinds. I love to have variety. Cocunut macaroons, Buckeyes, Sour Cream cutouts, Haystacks, Chocolate Fudge Blossoms, Chocolate covered Pretzels, Russian Teacakes, Kolacky, and Molasses cookies. Yay! [​IMG]

    Yes, we finally made cookies yesterday too! We made Big-Batch Sugar and Molasses Cookies for church today. Also made dough for: honey, peppernuts, cranberry/toffee, and frosted sugar. We have a buffet style meal on Christmas Eve and I serve the cookies for dessert, although I am tempted to make a cheesecake this year. Thanks for the post-I love seeing what everyone else is baking!

    I'm making chewy molasses ginger cookies, spritz cookies with butter and maybe snowflake shaped rosettes sprinkled with powdered sugar. I have to replace either my deep fryer or my candy thermometer, to make the rosettes. If I replace the thermometer, then I could cook up some fudge... [​IMG]

    Made oatmeal cookies.......fail!

    Made sugar cookies with sour cream........fail!

    Sigh! I dunno what's wrong but all the ingredients I have are all new or just a few weeks old.

    Could it be the weather????/

    I made chocolate gingerbread dough and sugar cookie dough. Let the littles "make" the gingerbread cookies....5 yo (girl) and 7 yo boy were totally into it. 9 yo boy finally asked to make a tray. 12 yo had no interest. And 2 yo...well...lets just say he decorated.....EVERYTHING. I don't think there's a jimmy left in the bottle...and I now have no green sugar. (I can just make that right?)

    Also made chocolate/peppermint dipped pretzels and chocolates today.

    Tomorrow I think I'll make cream cheese cookies and maybe oatmeal raisin.

    Who wants to come over and wrap presents for me?
