Cookie Extravaganza

I am still convinced that a good, simple, homemade cookie is preferable to all the store-bought cookies one can find.
— James Beard

So this:


Turned into all of this:


Six batches of cookies and two batches of fudge, and we did it all in 12 hours.  I’m still exhausted, but it was a great time!

Oh, Karen’s cookies were Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies, Kissy Cookies (the peanut butter ones with the Hershey Kisses on top), and Peppermint Shortbread – I don’t know if that’s the official name of it, but it’s my favorite cookie of the six we made, and I’ll share the recipe if anyone’s interested.

  1. YUM. I tried a few different recipes for gingerbread this weekend to determine my favorite for my cookie baking this season. I’ve eaten A LOT of cookies in the past few days – and lucky me, PMS kinda coincided with this little experiment.

Chime in!
