Cookie Week!

This is officially Cookie Week in our house. The week before Christmas when we make tons of cookies!  Yesterday we started with pecan snowballs and chocolate crinkles. Tomorrow we’ll be doing sugar cookies and gingerbread men. I have a wicked awesome recipe for the gingerbread; they’re probably my favorite.

Friday is Girl’s Night. The woman hosting this month is having a cookie swap. She requested each of us to bring half a dozen to swap and take home plus a dozen to share at the party. I’m really looking forward to that.

Tuesday Gab has a church activity where they’re making plates to take to local missionaries. She needs a dozen for that.

I have a church thing (visit teaching) where I go with a partner to 5 assigned women from church…my partner and I go visit each woman with a brief message and a “so how’s things going.” I’m making plates of cookies for these 5 women and their families.

Then Gab and I have a couple families picked out to take plates to….we sing a carol and hand over the cookies. It’s been a tradition for the last 5 years. Lots of fun…we both look forward to it every year.

So…add all these cookies up and it makes for a week of major baking  😀
