Hey Family....Spoiler Alert (even though I would assume you'd be expecting them). Saturday was Christmas Cookie Extravaganza 2010. I didn't start nearly as early as I wanted, but I got sucked into my current book (My Life in France by Julia Child) and so I enjoyed the early morning sitting by the Christmas Tree tucked in a blanket reading.
When the fun began though, I had all the empty plates set up for their cookie goodness. Dominique (David's cousin who lives here in St. Louis) came over to help....it's always more fun baking cookies with someone!
I started with Chocolate Covered Pretzels...mmmmm. (and they were incredibly easy to make with a double boiler.)
Cocoa and Regular Sugar Cookies
Our favorite tasting sugar cookie
Our favorite designed cookie
Mmmmm, Peanut Butter Blossoms
Mid-way through the day
Terry came home and took posed shots of us.....Please don't mind my hair trying to dive into the bowl...it was just for pretend :-)
Terry's just snnnnnaaapppping away
All in all, the day was so much fun. We had a really fun time making all the cookies, we only messed up on a few recipes and it was just reading the wrong recipe from what we were originally intending to make, so it was just one more batch of cookies, no biggie.
All the cookies we made were:
Chocolate covered pretzels (that kinda counts)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip (my favorite)
Mint Chocolate Chip
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Plain Sugar Cookies
Cocoa Sugar Cookies
Who's coming for Cookies 2011??
