I didn't plan on baking cookies this year. Maybe just a few for us to let us know it's Christmas. We are celebrating Christmas day with Joe's son Dan and his lady, Mel. Mel loves my cookies. She was disappointed that I hadn't made any on Thanksgiving.
So, when I called Dan and asked what I could bring...he said "Christmas cookies." I didn't have the heart to tell him that I didn't bake any. So early this morning, I started baking. Four kinds of cookies are sitting in containers...waiting to be arranged on a plate to go to Mel and Dan. Cutouts (what would Christmas be without cutouts?) molasses crinkles..(one of my favorites...anything with ginger and molasses) and the Eagle Brand layer cookies. I made rum balls a while back...they are getting mellow in the fridge.
Of course when Joe came home...he had to sample them to make sure that they are good. I guess they passed the test. After these pics were taken, I made the layered ones with Eagle Brand Milk. I wouldn't have frosted the cut outs if I was the only one eating them, but Joe loves frosting.
So, we will have cookies on Christmas day. I didn't make many...so there won't be any for the birds.
