Tis the Season to Bake!

So...I love to bake and I love to bake even more at Christmas time. I don't know what it is about making Christmas cookies, but I love it! I love figuring out what kinds I am going to make, I love baking them all in one day so the house smells so yummy, and I love plating them up and giving them out the the neighbors on Christmas Eve. This is a tradition that my mom started when I was a little girl. She used to bake and bake and bake every Christmas and on Christmas Eve she would make plates for all our neighbors; it was me and my sister's job to hand them out! I loved going from door to door handing out the yummy goodies and we always went right before church so we were all dressed up in our Christmas dresses. I now do that with my boys, right before church on Christmas Eve all dressed up, they deliver plates of goodies to all of our neighbors!
So here are all the kinds of yummy cookies that I made:

Yummy Peppermint Patties
Yummy Lemon Cookies
Yummy Haystacks
(chocolate & butterscotch)

Yummy Chocolate Chips

Yummy Peanut Butter Blossoms

Yummy White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
Yummy Sugar Cookies

So the kids decorated store bought sugar cookies, cuz that is one cookie that I just can't make! So we went to my favorite grocery store and bought 2 doz. sugar cookies from the bakery and brought them home for Brendan, Colin & Kennedy to decorate with white frosting and lots of different kinds of sprinkles!
The finished cookies!
They were so proud and the cookies were
so yummy!
