Second Annual Cookie Bake Off....

Today was the the second annual Cookie Baking Day for LeeAnn and I. My sister joined us and we baked eight different kinds of cookies. Our baking day started around noon (with crock pot peanut clusters) and ended around 9pm with frosting sugar cookies. Whew!

The kids didn't join us for much of the day. We began baking around naptime and saved sugar cookies for the end. The kids frosted a few cookies then took them to the living room to chow while we finished up. It was just easier that way.

The cookies are delicious. We made a pretty good variety of baked cookies and non-baked cookies. The frosting LeeAnn made was awesome.

Pictures to follow tomorrow.
On our baking agenda was:
Oreo Truffles
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Crock Pot Peanut Clusters
Andes Mint Cookies
All & Sundry's Chocolate Chip Cookies,
Chex Mix Puppy Chow
Sugar Cookies from a box with Wilton Buttercream icing (YUM!)

The kids had a blast decorating cookies.

As expected, there was LOTS of tasting going on...

Here's what EACH of us ended up with... this is 1/3 of what we made....


  1. Can you post the recipes of your favorites too? I need some new cookies recipes! What's with the crockpot cookies - sounds interesting!

  2. Holy Martha!! Feel better now about living up to your personal X-Mas expectations for the holiday season!? LOL:)

    I think I'm bringing Spinach & Artichoke Dip to the that okay? I know you won't eat it, but I think everyone else will enjoy it ;)
