I haven’t made cookies at Christmas for years, preferring to go crazy at Valley Bakery and get lots of different kinds and forego the fuss of, like, actually baking. This year, perhaps inspired by my new kitchen, I decided to plunge into cookie madness.
The above cookies are from epicurious.com, a combo of semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, cranberries, and some good old flaked oatmeal. I’m pleased with them, although when I bite into those chocolate chips and…something, which turns out to be the oatmeal, I keep thinking it ought to be bits of walnut. Guess I was imprinted from past choc chip cookies. Sarah says they’re delicious.
Next, I’ll try some of my mother-in-law’s best Christmas cookie recipes. Do you have cookie traditions?
