I'm a baker. I always have been and probably always will be. One of my favorite "jobs" throughout my tween and teen years was baking all of the Christmas cookies for my family. I have continued the tradition of baking cookies for my family & friends every year since. Like most people, I have my favorite cookies I make year after year, but I do try to switch it up a bit every now and then. Of course, I can never narrow down the choices so I make an overabundance of cookies that contribute to everyone's holiday waistlines. Sorry, family and friends - it's what I do! Many food blogs I read have started to post holiday cookies and I am already starting to add more to my holiday mix. Here are some that have caught my eye lately:
Chewy Peppermint Mocha Cookies - Eat, Live, Run
Peppermint Mocha Cookies - Sunny Side Up in San Diego
Chubby Hubby Truffles - Brown Eyed Baker
Cranberry Streusal Shortbread Bars - Fine Cooking
Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies - Pass the Sushi
I am sure that I will be adding more inspiration to my list in the next week or so!
What cookies do you plan to make this year? What are your favorites?
