Perhaps the thing I most look forward to during the holidays is Cookiepalooza. It’s a night in December where Susie and I get together with two of our other sisters, Caitlin and Nono, to bake cookies. There’s always a lot of discussion leading up to the “event” about what cookies will make the roster that year.
In past years I’ve emailed each of my sisters a ballot with all of the cookie choices I was considering, but this year I decided to create a Pinterest board with all of my “cookie contenders”. (For those of you who don’t know what Pinterest is, it’s a way to visually bookmark things of interest onto a virtual pin board. It’s also a black hole of visual goodness!)
It was a great way for me to bookmark cookie recipes as I came across them on blogs and websites and it was fun for my sisters to check in every couple of days to see what had been added.
We started the night out with this:
And ended up with this:
- Rosemary Butter Cookies
- Pretzel Shortbread Bars
- Chocolate Peppermint Patty Cookies
- Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies
- Jam Filled Bowties
- Chewy Chocolate Gingerbead
- Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
- Iced Sugar Cookies
Now to start planning next year!
