Are you sick of cookies yet?! Hah, as if there’s such a thing as being sick of cookies … ppaaalleeeaassse! I do think this year, I’m on an all time record of the amount of cookies that have come out of my kitchen .. what can I say, I’m trying to get into santa’s goodbooks and a little extra snacks on Christmas eve can’t hurt … also, all the snacking that happens – Christmas-ing and holiday partying is hard work … aka sitting around in comfy socks, sipping on hot toddys!!
In other anxiety-inducing news, have you finished your Christmas shopping?!?! Have you started?!?! I can officially answer no and no to the above. HELP ME … Why do the malls turn into hunger games around this time of year … can’t we all just be nice and STOP bumping into me – it’s NOT cool … and Santa is watching, so is the creepy elf on the shelf … p.s I’m SO doing that when I have kids … anything to help them with getting a therapist when they’re older. Isn’t that what the holiday season is all about … *creepy smiley emoticon
These little nuggets of joy are crispy, and boozy, and sweet!! They’re a mix of a macaroon and a rum ball … kind of.
