Bring on the cookies

20091212-DSC_2251Less than two weeks before Christmas and I finally start doing some holiday baking. I have a cookie exchange tonight so I waited until the last minute to get going on four dozen Double Ginger Cookies. We picked up a box of Rice Krispies at the grocery store today so Dev can make his first batch of Rice Krispies Treats tomorrow. Then I’m hoping to get in another batch of cookies for our family holiday party next weekend.

Beyond that, I’m not sure I’ll do much more holiday baking. The less sugar in the house the better. But I do hope to parlay this short spurt into something more regular during the colder months. Dev loves to help. I envision muffins and other goodies in the future. Something healthier that he can pop in his lunchbox for a snack. Something without crystallized ginger, though. The look on his face when he tried it was pretty priceless. It’s got quite a zing to it!
