Cookies

I wasn't going to bake a lot of cookies for this Christmas. There just weren't that many functions that I needed to supply cookies for this year.

But then I discovered I needed to bake cookies, because that's what I do. So I did.  Including the kinds that the kids helped with, I made ten different kinds of cookies.  Most of them went right into the freezer as soon as they were cooled.

Now they are emerging from the deep freezer to be shared.  I decided to give most of them away.
We had a little family Christmas with sister-in-law Jan and her partner Ann on Saturday evening.  That was an occasion for unpacking the Fitz & Floyd cookie tray and loading it up. The fatigmand, sugar cookies and gingerbread are on another tray. We ate lots of them, and then I packed up the rest to send with Jan to California, where she will join Brother Dave's family for Christmas. 

On Friday evening we joined my siblings for a get together at a restaurant in Chehalis.  I gave each of them a tin full of cookies. 
Friday morning I gave tins of cookies to our breakfast group, and have a few more friends to give to.

I should have just enough left for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

  5. Oh, Linda, they look scrumptious! We bake cookies for gifting our neighbors each year, but it didn't happen this season. Perhaps if I dedicate the week to baking, I can still pull it off. Have a great week! XO

  11. Familiar looking cookies but very few have been made around here for a long time. Several churches have cookie walks as fundraisers so we get our cookies without the work.
