CHRISTMAS COOKIE LOG & RECIPE LINKS

So, as I mentioned, I've been doing a lot of cookies this month.  Last year, I super overdid Christmas cookies, so I was more than wary as I approached this season.  I enlisted baking help - THANK YOU, CHRISTY! - and took two small rounds of pre-orders.  Even with thinking I was keeping it small, it was still well over 500 cookies, though there were a lot of minis.  I am pleased to say that I'm done, and with the exception of a few pickups left on my porch and delivering some neighbor cookies, the cookies are gone from my home!

Also, what I learned this month is that I can really only have one hobby at a time and be a stay at home mom.  I cannot blog regularly, make a bunch of cookies and also sleep enough.  This month I picked sleeping over blogging, and it was a wise choice.  But now that the cookies are done, it is nice to be writing.  I have a LOT to write about, because anytime I am not actually writing, my brain is still spending time composing posts.

I had fun bringing back some favorite sets from last year and creating some new sets.  The funniest set I did was for dear friends for their partners at their OBGYN clinic.  😂🤣😂 Did you know that a uterus could be so cute on a cookie?  Thanks, Livers fam, for giving me such a fun opportunity!

I offered these sets for pre-order, with Merry and Bright being the far away favorite.

I gave these sets to teachers and neighbors.

And, this special set is for my kiddos after our Disney reveal on Christmas morning. (they don't read the blog yet 😜)  I am so so so so so excited about this trip coming up in February, and I am ready for this secret to be out!

I know I am late to be posting recipes, but if you still have time or energy for some holiday baking, I'm listing links to some recipes!

Here is the blog post I wrote years ago with my cookie/frosting recipes.
Here's a blog post with lots of links to cookie recipes that I wrote in 2013. 😱

We are not traveling this year, so I am thinking I may do some more baking with the kids this break - we'll see how that goes!
