It’s Cookie Baking Time!

I don’t usually reblog my own posts, but here goes. I thought it appropriate since I just spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday baking seven different cookie recipes; running to the store every day for missing ingredients; and doing dishes until I puke. New this year in the cookie artillery is a lemon crinkle recipe that is extremely messy, but only requires four ingredients: Lemon cake mix, one egg, an 8 oz container of Cool Whip, and powdered sugar. They are extremely yummy and I shall be making them again next year. Give me anything with lemon and I’ll love you forever! Anyhow, if you enjoy baking and have a favorite cookie recipe (holiday or otherwise), feel free to post a link to it in the comments. I’ll start…

Today begins Cookie Baking Extravaganza week! WooHoo!

I have started baking Christmas cookies for my friends and family (and a few for myself). Today’s blog post is merely a break in the action (my back needs a rest).

It’s an annual event that I start in early December so that I have time to get the cookie varieties packaged in tins and a couple of boxes sent to my brother and his girlfriend.

Today, I passed on church in favor of an early morning swim and a start on the “let’s throw flour everywhere” process.

Last year, I tried a few new recipes. Only one deserved a repeat performance. The remainder of my baking set list returns to the annual favorites – those that always get the “thumbs up,” the cookies that are “expected”.

Chocolate Crinkles… (it’s chocolate!)

Outrageous Peanut Butter/Oatmeal/Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies… (Good-for-you ingredients)

    I am prepared to like it on account of extreme yumminess, not because I have the slightest intention of doing anything about it ! 😀

  2. I for one am delighted that you re-blogged this – those cookies look wonderful and calorie free, too, right? Pixels don’t have colories. Which I think is the best policy for me this Christmas. All the best to you and your household this season!

      No, pixels don’t have calories. Unfortunately, the pixels are within easy reach for me and I am ready to steal one…

  3. Oh my goodness, where can I place my order? 🙂 This is the first year I’m actually baking instead of rolling out the cookie dough log. The outrageous peanut butter cookie sounds awesome!

      Here’s the recipe:
      Hints: Use butter! If you are at all health conscious, you can easily substitute the stevia/sugar mix for the white sugar or replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar. I use Krema natural peanut butter and Ghirardelli or a good 60% or higher chocolate chip. Don’t skimp on the ingredients and they will come out absolutely delicious!
