For Christmas this year (er 2012 – sorry for the late post!) I decided to NOT partake in gift exchanges and instead, meet up with friends for some QT. Much more along the lines of what Christmas means to me. I decided to bake cookies to gift as well – something small (and tasty) but nothing significant enough to make the other person(s) feel they need to return a gift.
I’m not sure if my plan backfired. After sharing my ‘no gift exchange’ theme this year, no invites came to meet up for some QT. Ironic?? What do you think this tells me about my friends? Coincidentally, this was the one year I went on a huge baking spree.
Peppermint Sugar Cookies
Ginger Snaps (the beginning of)
Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’ll admit, we had well over 150 cookies & treats as I also made coconut rice krispie treats as well (not pictured – sorry!). Figuring that I’d be serving these cookies up whenever someone stopped by to visit or be gifting some to them when meeting up, I made the cookies smaller then usual to gain a larger yield. We still have a food storage container full as I’m slowly doling them out to the hubster and I after dinner. No need to gorge on them in one night and go to bed with a tummy ache LOL.
What treats did you make for Christmas?
