12 Days of Christmas Cookies 2014 Round Up

We made it!

12 whole days of Christmas Cookies!

12 Days of Christmas Cookies Round Up 2014 | American Heritage Cooking

I tried to balance new with old family favorites; easy with more complicated; and traditional with more modern creations.

The hardest thing about the past 12 days was narrowing down the Christmas cookies to bake: I have dozens of cookbooks and some are even devoted to Christmas Cookies. Not to mention this little thing called the internet…cookies everywhere!

My list is ever-growing and I can’t wait for next year! Maybe we’ll even make it a month!

I can’t handle it!

By the time this posts I’ll be en route to New Zealand with my husband and family. It’s been nine years since I visited and I can’t wait to go back again to see if it is even half as beautiful and lush as it is in my memory.

And this time I have a real camera!

So prepare yourselves for the onslaught of New Zealand pictures on social media and probably AHC! #sorryimnotsorry

    We made it, Lindsey! With your baking prowess and my moral support, we made it. You know how runner’s talk about the “runner’s high”? Well, I am currently operating on a “AHC Cookie high”…and I suspect it’s way better than any runner’s high. We just won’t talk about what happens when I come down off of that high…in fact, let’s just keep making more cookies instead! Tomorrow! I’m looking forward to seeing another one tomorrow…don’t let me down, please. :-)

      Your comments are raising my blood pressure, David! There will be no more cookies for several months…I’ve put my foot down. When are you going to post the kitchen sink cookies you sent me…I want more and I think those would be worth breaking my mini temper tantrum above for.

You made excellent choices. Thanks for all the hard work and for sharing. Meanwhile, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. :) Warmest wishes to you and yours for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! xo
