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.
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. A week after I made those cookies I tried to give it one more try with the royal icing and I finally got it. The cookies in the photo were so many kinds of stale, but they looked great, and tasted great when they were fresh.
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.
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. It was my first pinned recipe to try. And when I say it’s easy-mode, I mean that.
I’m on a mission to try and cut out all boxed or prepackaged baked goods.
If you’re like me, you buy bananas and eat a couple but sure enough, you have those last three or four you forget about and they just sit there getting brown. Instead of throwing them away, put them to good use.
That’s exactly what I put in the google search this weekend when hubs asked to make some scratch made cookies. Step aside cookie monster. When hubs wants chocolate chip cookies, hubs gets all the chocolate chip cookies. This recipe was so easy to make.
