Blood, Sweat and Cookies.....

It's no secret that I LOVE to bake. So Christmas time is like the Superbowl of baking for me. This year I couldn't wait to dive in to my new kitchen and whip up some cookies for all of my sweet new neighbors.

Emmy was pretty interested in being a part of the baking and really wanted to help.

Even though her idea of helping meant rolling out her own 3 inch piece of cookie dough and stabbing it uncontrollably with the end of her little rolling pin, I was still happy she had an interest in my favorite pastime.

Tyson would come in just to decorate. He can't pass up some icing and sprinkles.

I make these every year. You can read more about them here.

Two days worth of baking and at least six months worth of calories, Merry Christmas!!!


  1. They look delicious! I'm sure your neighbors will love them! And your kitchen helper is too cute! I'm happy yall are all adjusting to the move!

  2. Yum! Looks like everyone had fun. I remember reading the pan de Polvo recipe last year. I couldn't muster up the guts to do it....maybe this year!
