The great cookie exchange

Thomas's daddy making plum pudding.

I love baking. I love the smell of cookie dough, cinnamon and fresh out-of-the-oven sweets. I also love eating them, even though my  pre-resolution is not to gain wight this month. But Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in our house without a tin container in the freezer filled with yummy snacks waiting to be savoured.

When my little guy is older, baking together for Christmas will be on the schedule every year. I hope he’ll come to enjoy it as much as I do.

But like like many moms, I can’t seem to find the motivation to make a variety of cookies, squares and nibbles for guests who come over during the holidays. So I decided to host a cookie exchange among my mommy friends. I figure if I bake 2-dozen of one thing and end up with a mish-mash of sweets to offer people, my holiday baking will be a success. Plus, I get to host another mommy get-together before we’re all too busy to spare a few hours.

So now comes the dilemma of what to make. The simplest thing would be my favourite chocolate chip cookies – but that’s not very Christmas-y. So I’m open to suggestions. If you happen to have some great and simple recipes on hand, please share!
