One of those things was to get my cookie doughs that I bake for others going so I don't have to spend a whole day both pre-mixing and then baking a zillion different cookies. So when the Mr came home, this was his view...
I got 4 doughs done...ChocoRolo (sans rolos of course until baking day), Snowballs for the MIL, shortbread and ginger molasses (a new to me recipe this year since I'm craving Bent Fork Bakery's ginger molasses cookies and these looked similar.) To make it easier on myself come baking day, I keep up my habit of writing the type of cookie, oven temp needed and bake time so I don't need to go searching for recipes.
While a little crumb here or there went into the pie hole for "quality control", it was nowhere near as bad as it could've and has been in the past. I immediately turned on the hot water as I would spoon it into a bowl to be chilled and shove the beater, mixing bowl and spatula under it so I couldn't scrape the bowl with my finger. Well, wearing food gloves helps with that but I even wash those because I just don't trust myself sometimes. Oy.
I think I have 4 more to make today so the freezer tray should be nice and full and next week my logs and new baking sheets will be ready to start pumping out the holiday deliciousness.
What are your favorite cookies to bake or receive?
