Cookie Day

Every year, my cousin hosts a 'cookie day' with family.  We all get together and bake cookies; enough to share and enough for my aunt for dessert for Christmas dinner.  It's a great time full of baking, obviously, laughter, singing ( the Christmas songs must be played) a bit of sipping mimosas, and did I mention laughter?

Sophia looks forward to this family tradition every year.  She loves baking and my aunt always lets her decorate all the sugar cookies. 

                                    There was ALOT of cookies!  Sophia did a great job.

These are Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal cookies my cousin made.  Oh My Goodness!  So yummy!

Cappuccino Flats - a coffee spice cookie dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with candy canes.

 Peppermint Chocolate Truffles.  There's a Hershey Kiss inside each one!

 These are Pumpkin Snickerdoodles Sophia and I made.  Snickerdoodles were a cookie my grandmother use to make.  The Pumpkin gives it a new twist.  You can find the recipe here
Lots of baking and of course taste testing!
Sophia was a bit silly.  Maybe it was all the cookies?

I feel incredibly blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.  People who love me, my husband and kids.  There is no greater gift than family!  Love you lots! ox
