The cookies filled my dining table!
My crystal rooster presided over the cookie table surrounded by Christmas light bulbs that belonged to my husband's grandmother.
Another table held the cookie recipe booklets, apron ornaments and more cookies.
I was told that the ornament aprons also fit Barbie dolls!
These are the cookies I made this year. I originally wanted to try decorated sugar cookies. After quadrupling the eggs while doubling the recipe for the first batch and then setting the oven to 250 degrees instead of 350 degrees and having part of a batch slide off the cookie sheet while I was removing them from my bottom oven, I decided to switch to a less time consuming recipe.
We served appetizers, punch and coffee.
Everyone was given a bell necklace to wear. If caught saying the word "cookie", the necklace had to be given to the person who caught you.
