I haven't decided yet and wondered if any of you already know what you're doing.
For me, i bought a set of Christmas Tree Ornament Decoration cookie cutters a few months ago - so my plan is to make some of those.
Thought about *snow flake* ones - but considering our Christmas temperatures are usually around the 37C+ = (104F) think i will give that shape a miss -
This year i am decorating our white tree in shades of pinks/whites and silver, so will do the cookies to match.
Welllllll thats the plan -
Like Bleuhue, I plan to try the gingerbread snowflakes. I have two different recipes but can't decide which one I am going to use Oh.....the dilemma! I made ornament cookies, with the cutters from Williams-Sonoma, last year and they came out pretty cool. I think that you'll love 'em, Bluehue.
I also plan to make several drop cookies for cookie packages that I plan to give as gifts this year. There is a thread with awesome ookies recipes here on CC. I plan to try several of the recipes. Here you go:
We just bake for family & friends not to sell... I started baking with my mom since I was a little girl (and I am old now)and every Christmas we would make cookie platters for everyone-what fun. Now, my 3 teens & I bake every year and carry on the tradition. We make a variety of usually sugar,oatmeal raisin,chocolate chip,rum balls,peanut butter, lemon bars,brownies, fudge, & then add candies to the platters. Nothing out of the ordinary but we have a blast playing Christmas music & baking. Happy Holidays Everyone!
I do a cookie exchange with friends and family every year (this will be the 5th year) and I usually make 2-3 types of cookies, and then end up with at least a dozen varieties. I always make a sugar cookie, usually snowmen or angels, and then a drop type cookie. My one girlfriend asks me to make these coconut jam thumbprint cookies every year, so I usually end up doing those too.
Last year, this was so popular that I'm bringing it back. I collect 8 friends/family .... usually my daughter, 2 sisters and they're all allowed to bring a friend or two. For $25 each, they come into my commercial kitchen, I supply ALL ingredients, we bake cookies for about 4 hours. Then they pack up all they can carry and their Xmas baking is done. With a dollar general right next door, they can buy cheap holiday trays & make up cookie trays for church members, neighbors, etc., and they're all done. We usually have between 1000 to 2000 cookies to split up.
So this year, I've put the word out that I will do that same for any group, family or orgz. $25/head and they can bake in my kitchen. Great for groups who want to have a holiday bake sale, or large families, or just a Girls Night Out.
I get $200 and don't have to do any work. Luv it!
That sounds so cool, I wished I lived near you...
