Christmas Cookies 2011

Every year I make Christmas cookies. Lots & LOTS of cookies. I have some favorite recipes & usually try to stick to 5 or 6 varieties. This year I wanted to cut back on the quantity of cookies.
I think this year I'm going for an easier Christmas. You know, more time "enjoying" the season.

These are my "almost-famous-in-my-own-mind" Chocolate Chip cookies. I think if I narrowed it down to just one type of cookie this would be it. Everyone's favorite.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies. Joe loves these but I usually just make them a couple of times a year.

Walnut Tassies, or Walnut Tarts...whatever you call them, they are DELICIOUS!! They're a bit time consuming but so worth it. ;)

Another of Joe's favorite, Honey Sand Balls, or as I call them "Snowballs".

Usually every year I make red & green Spritz cookies. During one of my marathon pinning sessions on Pinterest, I found these cookies & thought that I could cut out my usual spritz cookies with these. However I doubled the recipe but rolled them as one so the cookies came out HUGE! As pretty as they are, the consensus was to bring back the Spritz next year. Pinterest-FAIL. Oh well.

they all look delicious Sara - I cut back this year too but that had a lot to do with my broken oven - but it just get's too overwhelming every year - those Pinterest cookies don't look like a fail to me :)
