Cookie Run

It's that time of year again!  COOKIE TIME!  Traditionally, I take off the last Friday (or work day) before the holiday and spend it in my kitchen, covered in flour.  This year....was no exception.
7 kinds of cookies:
1.  Eggnog Wreaths
2.  Cranberry Biscotti
3.  Oatmeal Banana
4.  Gingerbread Men (and Women)
5.  Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprints
6.  Cinnamon Swirl Cookies
7.  Almond Crescents.

21 dozen cookies.  NO batter tasting (go me!)  5 hours of Christmas Carols.  And  a nice 6 mile run while waiting for batches to cool and others to go in the oven. 

Little Ginger people waiting to be baked....
 Biscotti (recipe soon!), Banana Oat cookies
 Wreaths, Cinnamon Swirls, Peanut Butters waiting for Jelly....

 Almond Crescents waiting for their sugar bath (Uncle Alan's cookies!)

Frosted and Drying :-)
I know, I know, why spend 5 hours in a kitchen making hundreds of cookies?  Well, it's fun.  And relaxing.  And holiday spirit inducing.  And really, when it comes down to it, there's no better homemade gift than a plate of yummy, festive cookies.

Have you baked this year?  What's your favorite cookie?
