I STINKING LOVE CHRISTMAS! I am one of those jerks you all get irritated with because I love when they put up those first few Christmas decorations at the store. I love sneaking back to that section where they already have out the first boxes of ornaments, the first shipment of wrapping paper, and all the bows fully stocked before the section get ravaged. Most of all, though, I can’t wait for the Christmas baking! I can barely wait to put up my tree while listening to Ralphie whine about not shooting his eye out or to Bing croon out wishes of a white Christmas and smelling the most recent batch of cookies in the oven.

I am looking forward to the chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, decorated sugar cookies, lemon cookies, and, my personal favorite, snickerdoodles. Guess what, my loves, I am test kitchening a bunch of new cookies! I have been trying to perfect my sugar cookie recipe and doing a bunch of new kind of cookies. Spoiler alert - Here are a few recipes I am writing: Pumpkin cookies, apple cookies, whiskey thumbprint cookies, and much much more!
