My Christmas eve cookie platter went off without a hitch this year. It was by far the easiest year with my baking. Between the sugar cookies, spritz cookies, wreaths, and Rice Krispies trees, I made about 160 treats, and it ended up being more than enough for the 30-plus family members who gathered at our house for festivities.
I’ve found that the baking gets a little easier each year as I consider what was left over and take notes for the next year. This year I had a cookie press, which I used for the chocolate spritz cookies, and I kept those simple since the wreaths and the sugar cookies are always so involved.
Since I did all that baking last week, I’m taking this week off. Have a happy new year!
