Flour Has Been Flying

There's been an insane amount of flour and sugar going around my kitchen these past few days.  Was thinking about cutting back on the variety of cookies but when your kids make special requests, you give in.

Wasn't going to make the Peanut Butter Blossoms this year but Marissa requested them.

Been on the hunt for a soft, non-iced, sugar cookie recipe that's Marissa approved.  She said these were ok, but didn't meet her expectations.  For the record, everyone else in the family approved of them.  She's just a stinker.

White chocolate macadamia nut cookies with coconut is a favorite of Joe's.

Another of Joe's favorite are honey sand balls.  Lots of steps to these, not that they're hard to make, just tedious.  They usually get made just once a year.

Another cookie that I cut back on but still make a lot are the Spritz.  My least favorite cookie.

Another favorite of mine are the walnut tarts.  These are beyond good!  Perfect with a cup of coffee.

The all time favorite chocolate chip, that we can never get enough of.

It's been a lot of hours in the kitchen but time well spent, especially when the girls help.
