Normally I spread holiday baking out over a week or so, but this year with Thanksgiving being so late this year along with a work trip next week, I don’t have as much time as usual. So yesterday and today I am a cookie-making machine!
I marked all my recipes in their various books and then went through and made an ingredient list. The shopping went pretty quickly, although I did need to hit two stores. No Andes Mints or good peanut butter at the first store. Except for getting our tree on Friday (the only shopping I’m willing to do on Black Friday), I’ve been doing pretty much nothing but measuring, stirring, shaping and baking. The tins are starting to pile up on the front porch; it’s like having a walk-in freezer. I don’t know if I’ll get all of them done before my trip, but that’s my goal. Here is this year’s list:
- Anna’s Chocolate Chip (yes, our Anna) – using mini red and green candies
- Pecan Meltaways
- Vanilla Walnut Crescents
- Peanut Butter Bon Bons
- Peanut Butter Blossoms
- Soft Gingerbread
- White Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprints
- Mint Surprises
- Derby Cookies
- Milk Chocolate Fudge
- Milk Chocolate/PB Fudge
That should keep us in cookies until 2020!
Tell me your very favorite holiday cookie.
