Thanks to a canceled school day, we had our Christmas cookie bake-a-thon. I had planned to make three batches of three recipes each, two tried-and-tested (Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms) and one newcomer, Thumbprint cookies. The Thumbprints were a bit of a bust and won't be back next year. They are a butter-based cookie that ended up spreading and looking more fried egg than cookie. Anyway, we had fun making about 18 dozen cookies in all. The were boxed up as gifts, and we still have about 426 cookies left to eat, it seems.
