Christmas Baking in November

5 Nov

Men go hunting. And women start baking! It has become an annual tradition for my mom, sister, and I to bake massive amounts of Christmas cookies in November! Then we freeze them and hope there are at least a few left  by the time Christmas finally rolls around!

SEVEN bowls of cookie dough! Yes, we are insane! Usually we tackle three or four kinds of cookies in a day. But apparently this year we decided to whip out the big guns!

My mom, the master cookie maker! These six batches of cookies is just the beginning for this lady! Usually she ends up with about fifteen kinds! Her cookie platters are the ones we all dream of diving into!

And a little sneak peak of a few of the cookies!

Reese’s peanut butter cups wrapped in a peanut butter cookie! De-licious!

Mint chocolate chip cookies rolled in sugar!

Classic spritz cookies!

And the chocolate cookies with a peanut butter surprise (before they received their beautiful powdered sugar dusting!)

What a day! Who knew a full day of baking could be so exhausting! And it doesn’t help that I have about a pound of dough sitting in my tummy!
