As I am about to detail what sort of Christmas cookies I’m making for my mom and sisters this year under this cut here:
Even though I’m not much of a baker, I picked up a copy of Everyday Food‘s cookie edition sometime last month, because the cover assures me the contents are “all easy and delicious.”
I dunno about easy (feel free to ask me again next week) but delicious? Let me tell you, I started flipping through this magazine on the subway ride home after I bought it… and had to put it away because I kept silently going oooooh! every time I turned a page. Fortunately, this is New York and you really have to be extra-super-freaky-deaky before anyone will start to gape at you, but still.
Anyway, as I sit here and wait for FreshDirect to deliver my ingredients, here are the cookies I’m making this year:
Chewy Molasses-Spice Cookies. These are pretty much just for me (and maybe the kid, who will eat almost anything) seeing as I think I’m the only one who likes this sort of cookie.
Lemon Squares. My mom and I both really love lemony baked goods. Really love them. I’m pretty sure we would duke it out over the last lemon donut — filial piety can go screw.
Flourless Peanut-Chocolate Cookies. No recipe link for this one, but they’re pretty much a flourless peanut butter cookies with peanuts and chocolate chips.
Outrageous Chocolate Cookies. Okay, “outrageous” seems a little… extreme to describe cookies, but then again, have a look:
Damn, I’m totally making those ones first.
