Christmas Cookie Baking



 This time of year is pure madness.  Between decorating, shopping and baking there is not much time for anything else.

 Each year I bake over 1000 cookies to pass out to the elderly in our neighborhood and to the homeless in the city.

 I bake them and then put them in containers in a cold place to keep until I make up the cookie trays.

I usually make the usual family Xmas cookies but each year I add a few new ones.  These chocolate peppermint cookie sandwiches are new this year.

I am about a third of the way through my cookie baking.  Full speed ahead!

Those chocolate peppermint cookie sandwiches look delicious and chocolate works so well with peppermint!

The other ones look as delicious as they always do :-)

Have a great day!

From the looks of your cookies I want to move to your neighborhood just so I can be the recipient of some of those cookies
