Fresh Baked Goods.

So this weekend I got out the baking goodies and got to work. I absolutely love making cookies but since I don't really eat them that often (rephrase...I would love to eat them all the time but I *cant* eat them that often and still fit into my jeans)...I hardly ever make them. So when the holidays roll around, I am more than happy to bake incessantly and give away 99% of the fruit of my labors so that they expand someone else's waistlines instead of mine. ;) Though really Greg can eat 20 cookies and never gain anything so he's a great guinea pig.

I made some double chocolate peppermint dream cookies and snickerdoodles. When I don't want chocolate, the snickerdoodles are seriously my fave cookie ever. The chocolate ones came out so incredibly rich and I halved the butter in the recipe, so it was amazing to think that the original recipe called for double the butter. I really have no idea where it'd go, they were really rich anyway. And I did the same in the snickerdoodle recipe and they came out wonderful, to rave reviews from my better half (though maybe it was his spiked eggnog talking?).

Fruits of Labor.
