the cookie plan

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn't it?

Here's what Christmas means to me:

1. Getting to sing for 11 PM Christmas Eve service
(I know it's kind of geeky, but there you go . . . )

2. Baking cookies!

I actually do have a plan this year, and the decision-making process wasn't nearly as challenging as it was in years past. :) Here's the list:

Golden Vanilla Bean Caramels
Apricot Coconut Bars (sorry you can't see the recipe -- but I have a hard copy somewhere . . . !)
White Chocolate and Peppermint Brownies
Sugar Cookies (with frosting and sprinkles, of course!)
Triple-Ginger Cookies (from Fine Cooking . . . and I can't find the recipe online anywhere! Sorry!)
Glazed Lemon Cookies

Perhaps I'll get the tree up this weekend, so I can really go nuts next weekend! Baking, Christmas music, decorations . . . what else does one need?? :)

Maybe an iPad, so I don't get flour all over my laptop? ;)
(Not this year, I know! But a girl can dream, right?)

You are baking a ton! I might try to bake again this weekend - complete with christmas music and my minimal decorations. :)

Every year, I look forward to your baking list. This year sounds particularly delicious :)

I'm planning to put my tree up tonight, although I have no cookies or other xmas baking to eat while I do it. Nor do I have eggnog. On second thought, a trip to the grocery store, then the tree. And carols of course.

I dream of an ipad too :D
