I am done Christmas shopping . but don't have anything wrapped yet . I still have to mail all my cards . today I started baking Christmas cookies . I made 4 kinds of cookies today , but not done yet . I would like to make 2 more different ones , plus more of my favorite ones . I have made sugar cookies but did not decorate them yet . waiting until next week to do that when my granddaughter can come and help . my favorite cookies that I make every year also a family favorite . it's a Paula Deen's recipe , they are white choc ,macadamia nuts and cherry chunks . I always make a lot of these case they go quick. , I made the ooyee gooyee choc cookies , also Paula Deen's recipe, and snowballs . I make a lot of cookies cause I like to share them and give them as gifts . it's a nice homemade gift that everybody enjoys . but takes a lot of time to make them , but I love baking cookies .
