I was toying with the idea of doing a post of Mr. LL and I doing a gingerbread house together. But we did it together, without me stopping us to take photos because that is just what we needed at the moment. We needed some time together making something, laughing at its flaws, and eating the candy decorations as our house fell in on itself. I didn’t want to document it. I wanted to live it. Maybe next year.
So, since I don’t have that post, I thought I’d share this one I saw this morning. I have holiday cookies on the brain and this is a great round up.

Another Six Sisters’ recipe. Five ingredients is right up my alley, and who doesn’t like Chocolate Chip Cookies? Check out the recipe at the Six Sisters’ Stuff blog.
In an attempt to bake cookies faster, I tried making these with two pans in the oven at the same time. Sadly, my oven just wasn’t cool with that idea and I ended up with burnt bottom cookies. Not all of them, but like all the cookies on one corner of one pan would be burnt and one row on the other pan too. However, the Gentleman Friend loves them…burnt or not. They definitely do not taste like chocolate chip cookies I am used too, but they are good. You can really taste the cake batter in them, I think.

The next two cookie posts come from the same blog and were new ones for me to try this year. The Lemon Cool-Whip Crinkle Cookies call for four ingredients total, so it is my kind of recipe. You can check it out over at the Six Sisters’ Stuff blog.
These cookies are super light. I mean, holding one in your hand is like holding a feather. They smell like lemon Girl Scout cookies. They taste good too, but I like “cake”-ier cookies, personally. These were like eating lemon clouds.

For my work friends, I bake cookies as gifts. This year I did three different types of cookies, and the first one I am going to share with you are the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. I found the recipe a few years ago online, but haven’t been able to find it since. Doesn’t really matter though because these are the EASIEST cookies to make and they are amazing.
What You Need:
Then all you do is mix the two ingredients together, form balls of dough, put them on the cookie pan, and then bake per instructions on the sugar cookie dough packaging. They are VERY delicate cookies so take care in handling them (this really just means more broken cookies for the cook). These are always the biggest hit of all the cookies I bake.
