Holiday Cookie Baking

Every year, in honor of the holiday season, the twins, TK and KT, host cookie baking weekend.  It's a weekend where a bunch of us get together to, you guessed it, bake cookies. 

It is a 2 1/2 day cookie creation extravaganza where hundreds of cookies in over a dozen different varieties are made.

We're talking everything from raspberry thumbprints,

to cherry cookies,

 to rainbow cookies,

to rugelach,

to the classic chocolate chip,

and several varieties of truffles.

Everyone takes turns mixing, scooping, baking, cooling, and wrapping cookies.  There might also have been some smooshing and icing involved along the way. (I'll never tell, but here are some pictures of what that might look like. :-D )

By the end of the weekend, I didn't want to ever see another......

Who am I trying to kid?  I love cookies!

I can't wait for next year,
