Let There Be Holiday Baking #ChristmasCookies

What are your favorite cookies? Are they different from your favorite holiday cookie?

My sister and I love to bake. We started doing it at a young age with our mom. We got to bake side by side with her, our kid-sized bread loaves and pies going in with her grown up sized… Yes, she had mini bread loaf pans and tart tins to match her full sized ones, and that’s what we got to use. Then there were cookies and muffins and cupcakes…

As adults, we now find that baking relaxes us and brings on the nostalgia….

Which is why I love baking with the holidays.

In fact, so far, here’s what I’ve made this new recipe…

White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Pecan

Some spicy orange bark, and some chocolate peanut butter balls round out the candy side (though I’m thinking to also make peppermint bark).

And these Swedish Oatmeal cookies whose recipe was shared with me by a former 92 year old volunteer back in the day.

Next up will be hubby’s favorite, Candy Cane Cloud.

My favorite… Pumpkin Cookies…

Or maybe the universal favorite… Peanut Butter Blossoms.

Tomorrow I’ll be baking a few of these cookies with my sister and nephew…. and prepping trays to give out to my day job peeps.

All of this?

Screams that Christmas is coming soon and gets me super exited.

So if you haven’t told me yet, what is your favorite kind cookie?

What makes it feel like the holidays for you?

Do you bake or are you on the receiving end from someone/somewhere else?

Obviously, Legendary George Strait agrees with me on this subject…
