Let the Cookie Baking Begin!

Today the kitchen is going to be filled with the smells of Christmas Cookies! Each year, each of the children gets to pick a cookie that they want made for the holidays, so that gives me about 5 or 6 different types of cookies since Dad votes too. So, that's what I'm up to this fine Saturday!

Your header looks so familiar---I think I wore that outfit to last years' office Christmas party!NOT!
On a serious note, I miss getting together at my Grandmas. We made ice cream buckets full of spritz cookies. Their were 8 kids in my Mom's family and being good Catholics, they had lots of grandkids that needed cookies--make that wanted cookies. She always made a batch of date pinwheels for my Dad and my Grandpa. I loved all her cookies. Nothing is like that anymore. Your kids are so lucky to have you carrying on a tradition and baking with them....

Yummy!!!! Sounds like fun... Only problem is if I started makeing cookies this early they wouldn't make it till Christmas as I would eat them all :)

Ooooh, shall I bring the milk? Our baking begins next week, don't know whether the thought of it energizes me or exhausts me:)

Enjoy!

Glad you can bake cookies; that is one of my desserts I avoid, just never was very good at it!
We started our holiday gift baking with homemade peanut brittle, caramel corn, hot fudge sauce and biscotti.

Everyone is busy!!
Merry Christmas - love your blog "headers".
