Christmas Cookies


The kitchen in my home may be feeling a little neglected these days. I think it's mostly due to Advent getting away from me, but may be also due to some necessary detachment from food for me. I know my kids are sorely missing dessert these days, but mostly that's due to just plain busyness -- it's hard to bake dessert from the minivan.

I'm ready to get down to business and start baking some Christmas cookies. I normally go way over the top with Christmas cookies and we end up giving them away to any warm body that visits. This year, I decided that I'll do every one a favor and cut back. Then we won't be eating cookies simply because they exist. Each child gets to pick his or her favorite, and I'll make my (new-because-it's-low-fat) favorite and Doug's favorite.

The line-up is:

Icing Thumbprints - Noah's pick

-- Geoff's (college boy) pick

Chocolate Chip Biscotti
- Joshua's pick

Macaroons -- my pick (not yet tried)

Pizzelles -- Doug's pick

If none of these float your boat, here are some other tried-and-true recipes:
