I have blogged about this before so I won't retread that ground, except to say that this year, like last, was different because with the diabetes I can't partake of the cookies. However, I want to know how they turned out, so I passed on lunch and blew my carb allotment on tasting. They're all pretty good.
Some, not all, of them
Just how many cookies did I bake? Lord, I have no idea. I lost count. But there are chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal, snickerdoodles (I would make them just for the name, but they are SO GOOD), spritz, orange, and coconut. Multiple batches of each - the dining table is covered. The only drawback is the smell of sugar and baked goods is about to make me barf. I'm making a pizza for dinner because I need spicy to counteract all this sweet.
After dinner I will spread out large pieces of waxed paper and portion out bags of each kind, then load the cookie boxes and write the cards. I can do this while "White Christmas" is on TV. Isn't that just the quintessential holiday evening?
