Christmas Goodies

So, this past week was pretty hectic: shopping for Christmas gifts, several parties, all the wrapping, and packing to get out of town, to enjoy some decent baking to give cookies to the neighbors and to enjoy some for us. Phew! I think I'm finally about done (minus the packing). Anyway, I kinda feel bad that I don't have pictures along the way, but I decided to do a post on all the baking along with the recipes of the stuff I made. So here they are in no specific order. :-) I think I may have overdone it a bit.

Gingerbread cookies : I actually just wanted to decorate some cookies... I would have done a house, but those don't travel well. (maybe, a gingerbread car next year -- would be really cool to hook up a motor too? haha... I'm only half serious.)

Cranberry-Coconut Oatmeal cookies (I used a regular oatmeal cookies recipe, below, and added craisans and shredded coconut, very yummy)

Oatmeal Cookies: My cousin's fav.

Fudge with Marshmallows (My friend and I have dubbed this Geek Fudge because it's from one of the coolest foodie sites ever. I've mentioned before Cooking for Engineers)

Reese Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. I bought a bucket of cookie dough from one of my neighbor's kids for a school fundraiser. It's for a good cause, and it was easy and quick.

Fudge Brownies. I cheated here, this is from a boxed fudge brownie's set. It was in the cupboard, so I decided to go ahead and use it. Also easy and quick, and yummy.

Awesome Banana Muffins: These muffins are really good, and not overly sweet.

And that was my Sunday! Now to finish packing! ugh!

How come everything you make looks like it comes from a gourmet food store? Just kidding- looks awesome....I want an oatmeal cookie now. Your fudge is also very fudge-like...impressive! Merry Christmas, RadLinc crafts. Thanks for all the great tips...

Thanks. I think I've made peace with my camera for a few of the shots anyway. :-) Merry Christmas to you too Captain Monkeypants. :-)
