Christmas Cookie Baking Menu

If you're a long time AYITK reader, you probably are wondering if I'm making cookie packages this year. I'm sorry to say I'm not! There are a few reasons, the primary reason being I work much longer hours/commute than I used to, we're hosting quite a few parties in the next few weeks, and I'm still trying to get things situated around the new house.

I promise I'll reconsider next year, because I think I could have had another 50 orders already (here's last year's 50 orders, 1500 cookies in 2 days... talk about exhaustion!) However, I do still plan on having a marathon baking session this weekend so there are Christmas cookies at our housewarming party and for me to mail out to my family (so yes, family members, you'll still be getting yours this year).

This year, I'm not really doing many new things. I like to stick with what people like, and what is most traditional. I am adding a few new cookies this year that I'm excited about, though!

I'll soon be posting my Housewarming Party menu, which is all appetizers, some Christmas-y desserts, and a few fudges. Those might also end up in the cookie packs!

Are there any Christmas Cookies you LOVE that you think I should add to my list? Let me know! I love trying new things.

Sniff. Totally bummed. Those cookies made my Grandma, who I'm sure hasn't smiled since WWII, sing my praises as a gift giver to anyone who would listen.

Ooo all of those sound so good I couldn't possibly add any to the list!

These sound like a great array of cookies! I plan on doing some baking this year and am looking for ideas.

Not necessarily Christmas cookies but I love those rainbow cookies (the almond marzipan-y ones with the three layers and the jelly in the middle). I bet you could do them red and green only so they could be more Christmas-y. Also those nut crescent cookies. Delicious.
