Christmas Cookies 2015

I hate baking. I CAN bake and I do it quite well. Like I told my husband…I feel like something magical happens when I bake. (He claims I’m an egomaniac) But I still hate it.

So, what did the reluctant baker make this Christmas, cookie-wise?

Chocolate Chip – yes, so not inspiring but still a family favorite. AND, a family recipe.

Snickerdoodles – a lot of people claim not to like these but that means that they haven’t had MINE.


Sugar cookies – again, I make the best WITH stackable delicious icing. Thanks to my daughter and her friend for their decorating abilities.

And, because the snow globes looked like mushrooms, this happened.



Lemon Cups – one of my favorites!

Berger Cookies – it’s a Baltimore thing?

Russian Teacakes with Chocolate Chips – my mom is horrified that I would add chocolate chips. My philosophy is that everything is better with a smidgen of chocolate, right?

And powdered sugar is the herpes of the baking world. Seriously.

I also made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing that I loaded into a mason jar. Attach a spoon and voila! Instant portable treat!

And, so concludes cookie season 2015!

Seriously, I hate it.

Merry Christmas and happy baking!
