12 days of cookies, a look back

by Patricia on November 29, 2010 · 6 comments

Here we are just a couple days away from December, and I am not ready. Last year I made 12 days of cookies and wanted to it to be a tradition but I’m really not ready.

I am not ready to bake for 12 days straight. I’m not ready to eat cookies for 12 days straight. I’m not ready to run the number of miles it would take to work off all those cookies.

But I do think there should be cookies and other treats in December. I mean, what are the holidays without them?

So I guess my plan (if you can call it a plan) is to bake some undetermined number of cookies over the course of the month and share them with you here. If I get on a roll, I may even make 12 different cookies. But then again, it may only be 5 or 6.

While I figure out my baking plan for this holiday season, here is a review of last year’s 12 days of cookies:

Have you ever made Scottish Shortbread? That is our No.1 Christmas Cookie here in the UK :-)

Last year I made the marbled peppermint bark you posted. I am ashamed to say I made it several times! It is one of the first on my goodies list for this year too.

Love this idea! So cute and love last years choices. I might have to do the same but just 5-6 different cookies vs. 12. Cold weather + cookies = lbs I wont lose since it’s too chilly for outdoor running!!
