The Cookie List Grows

If you’d asked me a few weeks ago what Christmas cookies we were making this year, I would have laughed at you and said something like, probably none.  When you have limited grocery funds, real food has to come first before cookie ingredients.  But the grocery strings have been lightened just a tad, and some baking will commence anyway.   For the most part though, I was kind of thinking that we’d probably just make some delicious cut out Rich Rolled Sugar Cookies, because decorating them is one of the kids favorite things about the season.

But then I got to thinking that maybe the kids had other favorites we should include, so I asked them each for another favorite cookie.  Zander piped up with Snickerdoodles and Abigail chimed in with some kind of chocolate cookie.  After looking through a few cookies, she decided that Cherry Cordial Cookies would fit the bill nicely, but then after looking through more recipes, thought that maybe we should add Choco-Marshmallow Cookies too.  So then I asked Andy what he would like, though I needn’t have bothered, because I knew right away his request would be Ginger Spice Cookies.

See how my list has expanded through no effort of my own?

Then, in the interest of family harmony, I also asked my Hawaiian sister what cookies she would like best, and she quickly added my Camping Cookies and a batch of Lemon Bars to the list.  I’m a little surprised to discover that I’ve never shared my Lemon Bar recipe here on the blog.  Shame on me!  Once I make those, I will remedy that right away!

Since I asked her, Abigail has also been on a quest to find something really delicious to add to the cookie list.  She has since added Whoopie Pies and Vanilla Fudge to the list.  I hope she stops!  Zander has been working on learning to like foods he thought he didn’t like and has discovered that he kind of likes sweet minty things, and so he has requested something minty.  Oh my gosh, I may just have to make a batch of minty brownies!  Be still my heart!  Here is our list as of a few hours ago:

I’m a little afraid to ask other family members if there are any favorite cookies that are missing.   Other than the Vanilla Fudge, there probably won’t be any candy cranking out this year.  Nuts have gotten prohibitively expensive, and many of my candies need nuts.

So what are you making this year?  Anything fun, new and exciting?  Old favorites?  I’d love to know- just don’t tell my family, or they’ll add it to my list!

    I just found a new-to-me recipe for Almond Chocolate Roca that was sooo simple to make up. I let my 9yo daughter do most of it – it’s that easy. The family thought it was really good, so it goes on the “make again” list. I served it once and froze the rest for our Christmas weekend pig-out er… buffet.

    It’s here:

    We’ll also be having Almond Fingers, Danish pastries, White Chocolate Cranberry bars, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies, and Sour Cream Sugar Cookies. And since there’s a birthday on 12/24, there will be a birthday cake & ice cream around, too. Nothing like sugar, sugar, sugar!

    OOh, Debbie, I LOVE that cracker candy! We lovingly call it “Crack Candy” because it’s so addictive. That was smart of you to hide it away in the freezer!

    This is the one time of year you can enjoy sugar and sweets without remorse. Holiday eating is calorie free, you know! ;)
