I made cookie dough both from scratch and used the wonderful cookies mixes on the market. I think I started at 6am and kept at it until 3 in the afternoon.. Had my Pandora Christmas music on the iPad, My Starbucks Pumpkin Spice coffee and away I went.
I had cookies stacked everywhere while I decorated. Having to laugh at myself as I looked at some of the cookies, well like the little Gingerbread Men.. they looked scared. Oh well, they taste good! I tried something new with the Peanut Butter cookies.. I put a 1/2 cup of Nutella in the dough and a little bit more flour and let me tell you, "they taste wonderful"!
This was the first year I did not have anyone helping me.. I put a notice on my FB,, calling all grandchildren to come help. Had several response's to come eat them but no one came to decorate. Oh well, I had fun all by myself.
All together I made 8 boxes that will be wrapped and given as gifts to neighbors. Of course the Mr. has his own box and one for the nice people at his work. Oh and lets not forget my BFF Cardio Doc.. this man and his staff deserve so much more from me. I did pack some up and put them in the mail, for a friend. I sure hope she gets more than crumbs.
