The kids at work have already started talking about Christmas, and my coteachers and I have been on their case . . . "let's get through Thanksgiving first, before we start talking about Christmas!!"
Well, I'm kind of a hypocrite. Why? I'm already jazzed about Christmas cookie baking. I think I've already decided which types of cookies I'm going to make this year:
Candied Hazelnut Brittle
Lemon Rosemary Butter Cookies
Mexican Chocolate Cookies
Pistachio-Cherry Sandwich Cookies (I think from the most recent issue of VT . . . can't find it on the web yet . . . they tend to dawdle in that department!)
Yummy Molasses Crackles
and, my grandma's butter cookies with peppermint frosting, of course.
I am trying for a combination of different flavors (chocolate, lemon, fruit, mint, spice, nut, etc.,) appearances (a variety of colors/textures on the cookie plate,) and a mix of fancy flavors and comfortable favorites.
What do you think?
What are your holiday baking plans this year?
