On the second day of cookies...



So Saturday was our annual Cookie Day at Lars and Tara's.  Each year we get together and the girls make cookies together while the boys play on the Wii. There are certain staples that we pretty much make every year, but then we change up a few recipes every year to try out news things and try to perfect our output.  This year we made: Maple Date Bars, Sugar Cut Out Cookies, Buckeyes, Oatmeal Cookies and Ginger Cookies.



Below are Heather's Buckeyes.  They are made of graham crackers, peanut butter and butter, rolled into balls and then dipped in chocolate.  They are an every year undertaking.  Yeah, these don't leave our house...

We also make chocolate crinkles almost every year.  They are one of my absolute favorites going back to when I was a kid and mom and I made them with varying success in her very old olive green stove.

 

Isn't Lucy so cute?   She did a very good job cleaning up all the dough from the buckeyes that fell on the floor.  She's a helper! 



And Erin is looking very domestic... not to mention angelic.  Something is out of place here...



Luke slowly putting a buckeye out of it's misery.  He's so fast, all I got was a blur of him and a nice picture if Kristin.



Around 5, I headed out to my friend Jared's annual Christmas party.  No matter how hard we try, these two annual traditions seem to end up being on the same day.  But, Jared's party is for another blog post and another day.

:( My little turkey sandwich lunch suddenly doesn't seem so appealing.

Although at the moment, I am so sick of cookies, I can't even think about making more... ugh!
