This past Christmas we started a new tradition of baking cookies to give to teachers and support staff at Jackson and Olivia's school. The kids picked which cookies to make (all recipes were from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar) and we ended up with a great assortment.
Linzertorte Thumbprint Cookies, filled with luscious raspberry jam.
Cherry Almond Cookies, packed full of fruit and nuts.
Can't go wrong with cinnamon-dusted Snickerdoodles!
I love the appearance of these Chocolaty Crinkle Cookies when they come out of the oven.
The Macacamia Ginger Crunch Drops were my personal favorite. The nuts, ginger, and coconut extract give them a unique, tropical flavor.
Finally, our Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows turned out a little weird. I misread the directions and used all black cocoa powder, instead of a mix of black and regular cocoas. The cookies came out a little oily. We kept them and didn't include them in the gift boxes!
In addition to the cookies, we made a bunch of vanilla mini-cupcakes for the school's winter fundraiser.
After all that baking, it was nice to clean up and put on some fancy clothes for Tony's work holiday party.
This is really the last of my holiday posts, haha! The elves send their best until next year.
