Christmas Baking

I'm still pretty new at this, and can't get organized enough to post within a week of baking. Soon, I hope. Anyway, I made about 300 Christmas cookies this year, and here are a few photos from one day of baking.

These are Dorie Greenspan's Sables. Buttery and yummy.

The pistachio cardamom spritz cookies from The Wednesday Chef. The cookie press can be finicky, but once I got into the rhythm of it I made quite a few in a short time.

I found these chewy, spiced chocolate crackle cookies on Evil Shenanigans. What a great name! Very good cookies, too.

I gave lots away, in person and by mail, and I packed up the rest for the family Christmas party. Those are iced sugar cookies and iced chocolate gingerbread on the right. I got some wildlife cookie cutters from Ikea that were adorable.

And that may be all the cookies I make till next Christmas!

Another successful cookie baking season Mary! those sable cookies were super delicious, and so buttery! That said, the cardamon spritz cookies were the clear winners this year.

Wow! So many cookies! I don't think I've made that many over all of last year :)
