Christmas Cookies, cookies and more cookies...

 I never thought I would see the day when my kids don't even care that I am making cookies or that they would ever turn them down. But it is here. They have passed on my cookies. (Well my son will eat them when he feels like eating that is, he is two and doesn't eat much of anything.) And as for my daughter, the cookies are made, iced and leave the house... so she is just resigned to the fact the "cookie always leaves"... and then she moves onto the candy canes and peppermints and Chocolate kisses.... gotta love this season!!

Here are just some of the Christmas cookies I have been making for friends, teachers, schools etc these past few weeks. I felt so rushed, I didn't get to do anything "cool"- just clean, plain, simple cookies. There's nothing wrong with a plain Jane right!?

 I tried two chocolate cookie recipe's this year. A regular chocolate and "Hershey's Dark"... yum!

 All boxed, bagged and ready to go! Not all shown, but I got these super cute cookie boxes at Target's dollar section this year! Love that store!!
 Platters of mini's!
 Gifts for Preschool class :)

Guest Post: Frosting for the Cause

Ok, I seem to sometimes forget that I have a blog. Well truth is sometimes I forget alot of things. But I remember the kids and that is the important thing right? This time of the year is crazy enough with the holidays but add cookies to that and it is ridiculous!

I hope I haven't diminished the honor of guest posting on Frosting for the Cause with my lack of blogging, because it sure was my pleasure. Please check out this site and join if you can. There are some really cool recipes there and some names you may recognize as well!

I decided to stay away from posting any of my decorated cookies, you can see enough of them here and on my Facebook site. But instead, since I was writing about my Dad, I posted one of my Mom's cookie recipes that he loves. The best thing was that Mom was in town during this time to help me with some of the pictures. She was happy that I only showed her hands ;)

So here it is, from back on December 2nd. Mom's Almond Lace Cookies! And here he is... my Daddy, me and my big Sis... Oh and don't let that picture fool you, it was only taken 24 yrs ago ;)
