The great Christmas cookie swap of 2017 continues with these giant, chunky cookie creations! When Shannon first introduced to me this little tradition, I was quite thrilled at the chance to eat all the cookies. For my contribution, I knew that I had to include this recipe, as it’s now become my staple when it comes to cookie baking.
The annual NEO Christmas Cookie swap is back! Lamia and I are so excited because it’s an excuse to bake. And the boy is happy because he willingly plays the part of the taste-tester.
Like any good breakfast recipe post, I’ll start with the classic “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” speech.
There’s only one thing I love as much as pizza…doughnuts. While I do have a small amount of willpower when it comes to refusing these doughy rings of deliciousness when I’m out and about, if I make them at home, I will eat them. It’s just a fact. And that is one of the many reasons I never make them at home.
Last year I worked up a batch of Gingerbread cookies to test my patience, and my ability to work royal icing. Truth, I failed on attempts 1-5.
I’m absolutely ok with the fact that I’ve decided to make cookies at the beginning of each week in the month of December. Coincidentally so is my husband, his coworkers, and now my coworkers.
While I’m not participating in any actual cookie swaps (not entirely sure what a cookie swap is), I am baking, and consuming a lot of cookies this Christmas season. Thankfully, the hubs likes to take them to his office to share so we aren’t eating ALL of the cookies. This recipe is so easy and the ingredients are standard in every kitchen, not just a baker’s pantry.
Hubs and I are taking a less traditional Thanksgiving trip this year with his family…we’re cruising to Cabos!! So to get my Thanksgiving feast fix, here’s a list of recipes I’d consider cooking on
It’s October which means pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! While I’m not a huge fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, there are some pumpkin flavored things I will get behind. This recipe is a Pinterest OG Pin.
I’m on a mission to try and cut out all boxed or prepackaged baked goods. It’s all about the scratch-made life for me…at least until I run out of the sugar, butter, and flour needed to create yummy things from scratch. So far I’ve been able to bake things containing ingredients I already have.
