Christmas Cookies

Having a major sweet tooth, it's hard to resist baking lots of yummy Christmas cookies. But these days I really need to limit my sugar intake to prevent migraine attacks. I still ended up baking sugary sweets this year, because I really enjoy giving them away. My logic: Someone needs to be eating these, even if it's not me! My goal is to give away 95 percent of everything I made. The other five percent I will save for my boys. :)

This is the one time of year I don't feel like I'm missing out by not going outside. It's nice to be in when it's cold, listening to Christmas music and mixing up a batch of something. Then when it's all done, you get to deliver gifts you made yourself.

This year we did oatmeal cookies, Oreo balls, toffee, minty cream cheese cut-outs, peanut butter star cookies, and peppermint meringues.

Giving cookies. Doesn't really compare to God giving his Son. But we do what we can.

Ang - I brought them to the cookie party, and nobody seemed to eat anything! I thought, "So this is what happens at an all-girls party." :) I left that plate for you guys. If they got eaten I will bring you some more!
