C is for CooKieS!

Well, it is that time of year that there are plenty of sweets!

My friends and I have had a Christmas Cookie exchange every year
for the past 10 or 11 years.  We have been doing it since our kids were little.
It is a wonderful way to get an assortment of cookies
and of course have some girl time!

This year because of how busy it has been around here,
I reverted to some of my old favorites.
(I do like to try new recipes as I love to bake.)

One of my favorites that makes the house smell amazing
and certainly puts you in the Christmas Spirit is Ginger Snaps.
They have actually become quite famous with my boys,
the neighbors kids and my nephews.
( I am sure I will be sending these out in care packages to all of them when they are all adults!)

Enjoy every small moment of this Christmas Season!


  1. Stacey ... I have a 3-letter word for these ... Y U M! And your presentation is endearing, your friends are very lucky!
    I wouldn't mind too much if'n you'd share the recipe - they look divine!
    I might also add that your photography is wonderful ... maybe a second Etsy shop idea for you!

  2. Stacey, These look delicious! Gingerbread and ginger snaps are some of my favorite Christmas treats. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season and all the best in 2011! ~Sharon
