And we’re officially into the week o’ Christmas! I can’t wait until Saturday, we have some fun things planned! Do you have any special plans for the weekend?
Well, first things first, a big THANK YOU to Lauren from Healthy Delicious for my blogger baked goods! I got some butterscotch chip/coconut cookies and cranberry/orange scones!
First of all, I love baking…we all know that…but I also love packaging and making a cute and nice presentation. I swear, if I ever own my own bakery, I will probably put as much effort into the to-go containers as the baking! Here again is the big package I made for a good friend of mine at work:
Next, I made up some homemade pumpkin granola, the recipe I got from Maria at Two Peas and Their Pod. I have given this granola away before, and everyone LOVED it! So, I tied up little baggies with handfuls of granola with red and green ribbon. I thought it would be a healthier addition to all of the cookies.
Next up, the double chocolate mint chip cookies that Erica introduced me to, which originated from Renee at My Kitchen Adventures. I LOVE these cookies, and they go over so well at Christmastime. People at work devoured these things.
And last, but certainly not least, what might be my new favorite Christmas cookie, are the triple chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies. This recipe I came across at Lovin from the Oven. This girl can really come up with amazing cookie recipes!
The finished product:
The only modification I made was using more dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips and opted out of the milk chocolate chips because I’m not a huge milk chocolate fan. But, these turned out so good – I could’ve eaten the raw dough before it ever made it to the oven!
All together now
