Yes, we already made our first christmas cookies.
I think the most gratifying part of the year in terms of baking and especially making cookies is around Christmas. I mean, when else can you make WAY too many cookies and send them to friends and relatives. If you made "July" cookies and sent them out, people would NOT know what to do with that, would you?
I personally am really digging the christmas cookie thing this year because they are the supermodel of cookies. They can be so beautiful. They can be so kitchy. They can be so nostalgic.
They definitely multitask and they are yummy. Whats not to like?
