Holiday Baking

Well I started some of my holiday baking. I make the cookies early and freeze so I can do a little when the mood strikes. That is usually my intention but the cookies never make the freezer. This year Im making sure they aren’t available when everyone is home. So far so good.

Some of the cookies I make are from scratch and some are from mixes or even take and break. I put my own twist to them. No reason to make things harder during this time of year. Now when company shows up I know I will have plenty to offer without all the stress.
