I feel as though my own tradition is starting. This December was the second year that I made a bajillion cookies for Christmas presents. I LoVE it!! I'm practically in the kitchen all day with music playing covered in flour and butter. It's great. Last year I experimented with a ton of different cookies. Which was time consuming considering I choose to do everything at the last minute. But with all that crazy experimenting it did give me a chance to pick out which ones I wanted to make this year.
The final line-up (insert drum roll here): chocolate thumbprint cookies (this dough is amazing. like as in I wouldn't think twice about eating the whole batch of dough and inducing a severe food coma), pecan pie cookies (equally as addicting), and butter cookies (pretty much butter, flour, and sugar *sigh*). I was only in the kitchen for about 6 hours this time. I finally finished baking everything and put them in pretty boxes. It's equally as fun giving them out seeing friends faces ;). Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!
