Christmas Cookie Platters

Phewwwwww....I am finally done.  I made 18 of these this year.  Each platter has about 5 dozen cookies or more on it.  That's over 1000 cookies.  I don't think I will be baking anymore cookies for a while.
 Throughout fall I look at thrift shops for Christmas plates.  They rarely cost more than a dollar.

 Very early this morning I lined them all up.

 Then I started piling on the cookies and adding candy I buy from Salem. There is a really good candy shop there.

 Next, I wrap them in clear cellophane.

Each one gets decorated and has one of the ornaments I made attached to it.  All there is left to do now is deliver them.  Done for another year!
