    @secondchances:  Wow, that is a very impressive list! I’m a horrible baker, so I won’t bake much (maybe some candy for my mom, though that’s not really baking right?). I have tried several new cooking recipes that I found on pinterest though.

    Holy crap. That’s a ton of cookies. Can we be friends, IRL? (In Real Life)


    I’m gonna make these in a few weeks. They are “cinnamon bun cookies”

    My co-workers have asked for snickerdoodles, so I’ll be making those classics for the first time this year!  Every year, I bake the following with my mom (it’s such a nice tradition!):

    Peanut butter

    Peanut butter with hershey’s kisses

    Chocolate chip

    Oatmeal raisin

    Oatmeal craisin

    Ginger snap

    Sugar cookies (cut out and decorated!)

    Snow balls

    Fudge

    And then there’s a few others we’ll do, but we’ll mix it up every year.  In addition to cookies, I’m baking:

    Pecan pie

    Chocolate pecan pie

    Fruit pie of some kind (my mom wants me to teach her how to make pies!)

    Apple tart (I made one for Thanksigiving at my in-laws’ and I showed my mom a picture and she told me I have to make one for her now!)

    IF you haven’t guess, I LOVE BAKING!!!  For Thanksgiving, I made a chocolate pecan pie, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and an apple tart.  Baking is my therapy!

    I haven’t got a list yet, but this year I’m planning on making some of my old family recipes gluten free for some of my family members with Celiac disease/gluten intolerance.  So far I’m planning on:

    Almond sandies (gluten free)

    Iced sugar cookies (gluten free)

    Spicy chocolate cookies

    Chocolate dipped shortbread (gluten free)

    Empire cookies (gluten free)

    Not sure what other types I’ll make, but I’m guessing Pinterest will have something to do with it.

    Wow! I usually limit myself to 5 types of Christmas cookies each year.  This year’s list:

    – Pizzelles

    – Snowballs

    – Sugar cookies (w/icing)

    – Peanut butter with kisses

    – Chocolate crinkles

     

    I love Pinterest for recipes, but all of this year’s cookies are family recipes – and I’m really excited to try out my new pizzelle press I got at my wedding! I have a lot of cookies to make – I like to give cookies to my office, DH’s office, our leasing office, neighbors, etc.

    I’m making the norm: sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter blossoms and probably oatmeal or oatmeal chocolate chip.

    I’ve made oatmeal raisin and Kris Kringle (cranberries, pecans and white chocolate) ones so far, but I also plan on making chewy ginger cookies, Gingerbread men (with DD), shortbread, sugar, and hopefully windmill cookies (DH’s favourite). Apparently they’re not the ‘regular’ ones you can find a recipe for, though… they’re ones that his Mum used to make when he was younger, with Smarties in the middle…
    She has misplaced the recipe, but I’m hoping she can find it before Christmas!

    @abbie017:  Peppermint snowballs? Do you just add peppermint extract or is it a whole different recipe?

    @LadyBear:  peppermint extract and crushed candy canes in a basic sugar cookie dough, then roll them in powdered sugar after they are baked
