Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, and seasonal cookies are one of my favorite things. As probably everyone who reads this blog knows, for the past couple years, I celebrated the season by baking cookies for my co-workers every work day leading up to Christmas, aka the “12 days of cookies”. It’s that time of year again, and thanks to Black Friday sales and generous PILs, I have a shiny new KitchenAid Pro 600 to make absurd quantities of cookies.
Friday isn’t the “traditional” ideas posting day, but I’ve also missed several Saturdays, and I’m planning to get started with the cookie dough baking tomorrow. So this Ideas Post is all about cookie ideas. I have so many sticky notes in Dorie’s Cookies that it’s almost like I want to bake all 300+ kinds of cookies she describes…. every cookie I’ve made so far from this book has been somewhere on the spectrum of good (multigrain chocolate chip cookies) to outstanding (molasses-ginger cookies).
If you’re new to reading this blogging and wondering why you’re reading about cookie ideas instead of cookie recipes, the answer is I semi-regularly poll people for their opinions on what recipes I should make next. So these votes will translate into posted cookie recipes (soon)!
