Baking is a holiday tradition for me. I’ve made cookie plates for my family and friends for the last 7 years. I only missed one year. Back in 2009 we moved into our house December 1st and Thing 1 was a 5-month-old. By the time Christmas came, the kitchen had just finishing being unpacked and I was now chasing my little man around the house. I skipped baking and I felt really weird not baking. Like alien abduction weird.
This year I’m rearin’ to go and I have my favorite kitchen helper standing on his chair helping me crack eggs and dump measuring cups full of ingredients into the mixing bowl.
Some of these recipes I’ve been making for years and others are new. I always make a few of my go-to cookies and then add a couple new ones into the mix, rotating the cookie selection every year. I usually go on a two day baking binge and pump out 6-8 different goodies. I hope you enjoy this years recipes.
