Christmas Cookies

I have friends who have already started their baking like 3 weeks before Christmas. I haven't been able to bring myself to bake and freeze. So I do it all in the last week or 2. It's a lot of work. I'm making Russian teacakes, peanut butter choc chip, sugar cookies, pumpkin logs, pumpkin cookies and white trash. And I thought I was going to go lite on the Christmas baking this year :/

I love those peanut butter cookies with the Hershey Kisses in the middle. I've never made them before, but we're going to give them a try either this weekend or next. We made a lot of cake pops for Thanksgiving. The kids have been asking to do that again, but it's kind of a production and I don't know that I want to take that on again so soon. I also like to make candy cane brownies.

I told my kids we'll bake whatever they want to bake, as long as it's

Oooh...that sounds really good with the orange zest. I'd never thought to try that! I admit, I do not like making cut out cookies either. I hate all the clean-up involved.

DD and I are making candy cane brownies right now. We're waiting for the brownies to cool before we do the first layer of yumminess.

I dread the sugar cookie thing. They're still waiting for me to bake em. The kids will help decorate but with a 5 year old helping it's more work. They have fun doing it though. So.... a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
