Um, yeah. Still bare.
I have a good excuse, though. I’m
Since tomorrow is December 1st, and, in my opinion, the start of ‘baking month,’ I thought I’d make some tasty cookies for Craig’s co workers.
First up, my favorite double chocolate chunk cookies.
But this time, in the spirit of Christmas baking season, I’m using these dark chocolate/mint morsels in lieu of the chocolate chunks.
Next up: Snickerdoodles. My ultimate favorite Christmas cookie.
The two cookie doughs are chilling and I’ll bake them up shortly. In an effort to not clog Craig’s co worker’s arteries too heavily or cause their blood sugar to sky rocket into diabetic territories, I’ve picked out two baking recipes to bake each week until Christmas. Just enough to keep them smiling, but not enough to kill anyone. If I had it my way, I’d bake something each day. You just can’t beat the aroma of baking holiday goodies; it just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, even when you’re the type of person least likely to be described as warm and fuzzy.
I realize having two baked goods per week is still overkill, but the time I have left to bake for such a thankful and receptive audience is dwindling, so I’ve got to take advantage of it while I can. I’ll explain why my baking days are numbered shortly, but don’t worry, it’s nothing tragic like a broken Kitchen Aid mixer, or anything. Once our ducks are in a row and things are more official I ‘splain it to you.
Oooh, how ominous. 😉
Okay, time to bake.
And decorate my tree?
