The decorations are out, and my Santa Cookie jar is just begging for something in his tummy. It’s time to bake! Since I do most of my baking for the guys down at the base, I’m going to do all of it next week. I have drill on Saturday and want to take double the amount of items I did last year. I think the best way to do this is to stick to all( or mostly) cookies this year. I have so many great cookie recipes to pick from that I love, it shouldn’t be an issue. Plus, with my new kitchen, stove and freezer, I know I can make lots of doughs earlier in the week and bake them off on thursday and friday.
One exception is the marshmallows. I have to make the marshmallows. Homemade marshmallows are just the best and are such a surprise when I make them for everyone every year. And truffles. Gotta make tuffles too. Oh boy…here i go again….
Here is my (tentative) list for this holiday season. I think I may be adding a few things to show you all, but we’ll keep that between you and me:
Chocolate meringue cookies
Lazy mom’s gingerbread cookies
Cut out sugar cookies (decorated by sonny boy)
Ultimate chocolate chip cookies
Ritz cookies (so easy!)
Peanut butter cookies
Strawberry struesel bars
Homemade chocolate and coconut truffles
Wait, thats still a lot of stuff! Oh well, it’s only once a year! Now, lets see if I actually get through all of these. Wish me luck!
