Christmas Cookies - Week 3!

I didn't get around to baking quite as many types of cookies as I would have liked to this year, but I had to make sure to get in my favourites - Martha Stewart's Outrageous Chocolate Cookies.  These cookies are absolutely divine and always a big hit.  I made one batch with semi-sweet chocolate chunks (as the recipe calls for) and another with white chocolate chunks.  Both are amazing!

Christmas Cookies - Week 2!

This week was sugar cookie week.  Sugar cookies are one of my favourite things to bake.  I love the artistic aspect of them - the colours, the shapes and the sprinkles.  I did go a bit overboard this year though.  Between making some for a cookie exchange, some for my family and some for gifts, I think I made at least 12 dozen.  I am now ready for a sugar cookie break until Christmas 2009!

And done, yay!
