Paging Betty Crocker

Well, today is the day.
D Day.
Nah, that's not right.
It's C day!  C is for cookie, it's good enough for me....yeah, you know the song.  Today is the kick off of Holiday Baking Season 2012!  Usually I'll make about 6 or 7 different kinds of cookies (Almond Crescents, Sugar Cookies, Gingerbread people, pizelles...and a couple of new ones!).  This year I think I'll probably scale back and do maybe 4 different kinds-still enough to make some pretty Christmas presents and party gifts, but not so many that we will be eating them until next March!
Savvy?  Savvy.
ON deck for today:  Sugar Cookies!!  These are really my favorites to make-they are tasty, you can make all different kinds of shapes and sizes, plus they're fun to decorate.
We used to make these all the time when I was a kid-my decorating skills have not improved much, but it's still a good time!

 So what are your weekend plans?  Obviously, we are cookie making tonight (and hopefully not having a dinner of raw dough!).  Tomorrow is Greg's company's Christmas party, which is at the super swanky Irondequoit Country Club (incidentally, which is in Fairport=no sense).  We'll get dressed up and have a fine dinner, dessert and drinks via the company.  Not too shabby of an evening.
On Sunday, we're going to meet up with Greg's Dad and Lois, his main squeeze for dinner (to celebrate an important birthday!) and get some Christmas shopping done. 
Whew, full weekend!  I'm excited to get started, but also looking forward to getting some rest in there somewhere, too!

What does your weekend look like?  Are you making cookies?
