"I don't like making holiday cookies"
I do it, for the kids mostly, and a few for the neighbors. And, I wouldn't do it for the neighbors if it weren't for the kids. Which is weird because I generally like to work in the kitchen. I think it's a claustrophobia issue. Also, I don't like to eat them. In fact, that's probably the main reason. Just thinkin' out loud here. Don't tell, but this year (thanks to Martha) I snuck Allspice, Cardamom, ground cloves, and fresh cracked pepper into the cookies to "spice" things up a bit. We glazed them with the ol' standby: powder sugar and cream frosting. Except I used half and half--we're dieting. The candy cane sprinkles are peppermint flavored. That's probably the best part. These took. us. two. days.
