Baking Christmas cookies is so enjoyable and in a way rather thrifty. Since I purchased most of the ingredients on sale and with coupons I didn't have much in them. I don't know anyone who doesn't like a fresh homemade cookie. Accounting Dude and I pass them out to co-workers, friends, family members, and neighbors. This is our little way of letting these people know that we are thinking of them and appreciate them. Besides that they are pretty taste if I do say so myself. I should know I think I have eaten several dozen in the last couple of days.
