Here I am baking on Sunday again. I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a while (i.e. it has been pinned to my Pinterest board for a while). I needed to make sure I had an exit strategy for these cookies, like I do with most baked goods. A potluck, a gift, a party…they just gotta get out of my kitchen before I eat them all. After a quick trip to Paper Source, the problem was solved: work teammate Christmas gifts.
They’ll be gone by tomorrow and I get to feel like Santa. Win, win.
These cookies are only slightly more hands-on than chocolate chip cookies. They require hand rolling into balls, dredging through more sugar, and placing them at least 3″ apart from each other. I learned the importance of that quickly with the first pan. Look, butt cookies!
I had originally planned to do my nutrition reading today since I’m a little behind, but I opted for cookie baking instead… which feels a little hypocritical somehow.
Gratitude Journal Entry: I’m grateful for the holidays. In addition to the pretty Christmas lights, red coffee cups and festive parties (excluding Santa Con – not grateful for that), we all get some much needed time off. Not going anywhere for the holidays? Lie and say you are! Throw up an out-of-office on your email for a few days, everyone else will be doing it. It’s time to regroup!!
