I won't go on a tirade about how the Cookie Monster is no longer the Cookie Monster.
I'm not good at tirades.
I don't like discord.
But I will talk about cookies.
Because I like cookies.
I baked a lot of cookies this year.
Last year's count can be found here.
This year, I did indeed make a ginger crinkle. I also made frosted sugar cookies, hershey kiss peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip bars, pecan puffs, and these amazing Nutella stuffed triple chocolate chip cookies.
Wow. I'm making those again.
But for the cookie exchange, I made peppermint kiss cookies.
I didn't let the first batch cool enough, so the kisses started to melt a little...
And thanks to Bill for the amazing new cookie sheets! The cookies are perfectly baked, not burnt on the bottoms. And for the sugar cookies, I was supposed to grease the cookie sheet, but didn't. But the cookies didn't stick! That's how amazing my new baking sheets are.
