Christmas Cookies!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making cookies! Besides the fact that I have the biggest sweet tooth, I love to share the cookies with others! I love it that I now have a helper!! Let me just say that Norah wasn't the best at helping with the cut-out cookies because she just wanted to play with the dough. (I actually thought she would like using the cookie cutters - silly me.)
So today we made my favorite - peanut butter blossoms. Our little friend, Macy, came over today to help (she's 7). Macy was a great helper! Norah enjoyed making these cookies better than the cut-outs because she got to roll them in sugar. Norah rolled 1 cookie to every 4 because she was so busy talking. When the cookies were done baking, they put the chocolate kisses on top. The girls did great!
I also made chocolate cookies with mint frosting. These are also a favorite! Lucy stood at my leg and begged, "Cookie, cookie!"
Tomorrow I am going to dip pretzels in caramel and roll them in pecans and chopped up peanut butter chocolate chips.
Did I say that I love Christmas cookies?!

I love cookies too! My favorites are also peanut butter blossoms :) When I was little I also helped my mom bake cookies, but one time when she turned her back I bit the tops off of all the kisses. How's that for a great helper?

That pretzel thing sounds yummy! Justin and I thought the girls looked so cute in the snow.
