GCCCO: Day 20 & 21

The Great Christmas Cookie Catch-Up continues!

Monday, Day 20:These are Top 5 easy (ooo, maybe I’ll rate the cookies when I’m done with this nonsense). These S’mores Cookies were really fun to make and would have been even more fun if I hadn’t accidentally told Jerry what his awesome Christmas present is and had a fit in the middle of baking, had to call my sister to cry it out b/c I knew she’d react just as emotionally as I did and then laugh at how silly I was being b/c Jerry was still smiling at the awesomeness of his present. But I digress.Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. You should make these cookies. Right now.

Tuesday, Day 21:

Truth: It turns out that 21 days is my limit for having fun while baking cookies daily.

But I pressed on even though I’m a firm believer that you should cease to continue with something when it becomes a job and is no longer an enjoyable activity that you love. Don’t get me wrong, I still love baking…but I will be so happy not to see another cookie in 2011. (Ask me in 2 months if this is still true and I’ll bet I’ve already made another dozen).My neighbor, who has been tremendously benefiting from my Great Christmas Cookie Cook-Off (as have I every time it snows and they snow-blow our driveway), told me once that she can’t accept cookies from me that have powdered sugar on them b/c of a movie she watched where a neighbor was murdered by poison in the powdered sugar on homemade cookies. I don’t think she’ll turn these down. They’re too yummy.

Martha does it again (note to self and/or anyone who wants to get me this – I need it!) with Pfeffernussen. I was over this cookie before I even decided to make it and I was still impressed. It’s like a spicier gingersnap coated in powdered sugar. These might be my new gingersnap. I just decided that now. Give them a try…you may be a convert, too.

Now we just have to figure out how to pronounce it. ;)
