First I got organized:
Then I got busy:
|Peanut butter cups (1st half of batch)|
|Raspberry bar cookies|
At some point I went out and bought maraschino cherries, only to come home and find I didn't need them:
|My cabinet shelf isn't really this bowed. It's the angle I was holding the camera. I hope.|
Then I got ambitious:
|I call these negative chocolate chip cookies: white chips in chocolate dough.|
Then I got tired, and didn't make cookies out of the dough in the picture above. I abandoned my original plan, which was to give two types of cookie to each person based on what I'd learned of their preferences over the past few years. Instead, I decided to give everyone some of each.
And tomorrow I get to play Santa. Provided I don't trip on my way to the bus, land on my packages, and create 6 containers of tasty crumbs.
