In my book, any cookie is a Christmas cookie. Would peanut butter blossoms be more festive? Ya know, the ones with the Hershey kiss stuck on top?

Any cookie baked at Christmas, is a Christmas cookie - right?

Or you could look at it this way, they are making it easier on you! Drop cookies are quick!

You could give them in a festive tin or display them on a festive plate.

I am keeping it simple myself this year, just some gingersnaps and spritz.

Only once a year, and it was many, many years ago.

I tried making cookies again, a few years ago (to please someone else), but couldn't get many to come out right so I gave up. I buy store bought when I'm in the mood, which isn't often.

About every other month or three I'll get a brownie mix or make a pan of fudge. I share those with neighbors to keep from eating it all myself.

I like sweets all right, but I don't want them around all the time. I'm overweight enough as it is.
