Where did the year go? Another Christmas baking season and I'm no where near being ready to tackle it as I was last year. No excuses but I have been doctoring my right elbow and that makes it difficult to roll out and do some of the other things required to turn out a good cookie.

I started out with the simplest of them all Chocolate Chip Cookies. Those were done in the blink of an eye with my new cookie shaping utensil.

The next day, I made Peppermint Biscotti. I used the linked recipe but I used Peppermint flavoring and a tablespoon of crushed peppermint that I bought in the baking aisle at the local supermarket. Trust me there are all kinds of tricks for making a twist or turn to a favorite recipe.

Next came the Candy Bar filled sugar cookies that we trimmed with red and green candy sprinkles.

We are getting smart in our old age and dressed up the famous Peanut Butter Kiss cookies this year. Instead of baking the cookies on a cookie sheet, I put the dough in a tassie pan lined with pretty cups. After baking the cookies for 10-12 minutes at 350°, I stuffed a miniture peanute butter cup into each cookie. I found that you have to cool the cookies in the refrigerator for about an hour to get the chocolate to set on the top of the peanut butter cups.

We rounded out the week by making our favorite Ricotta Cheese Cookies. This year we took the easy way out and iced them with Store Icing and rolling them in Red and Green Decorating Crystals. I hate using store bought icings but when you are having arthritic attacks you have to do what you have to do to get the job done.
