Christmas Baking

I have been diligently mixing, cutting, baking, melting, and decorating Christmas cookies. This is what I'm filling my tins with this year:

Sugar Cut-Outs
Gingerbread
Pumpkin Cookies
Chocolate Chip
Thin Mints (yep, like the girl scout cookies)
Peppermint Bark
Cinnamon Gems
No-Bakes
Oatmeal Raisin

Bryan decorated sugar cookies for the first time in his life, behold his little cane creations:
