One of my favorite things about Christmas time is the idea of making Christmas Cookies.  It is just so fun and glamorous, standing there in an nice pretty apron- glittery sprinkles, colored sugars neatly layed out on the counter, the sweetness wafting from the steaming hot oven... This is how it is at least in my head.....

In reality, it is a bit of a disaster and I always end up making more than one kind overwhelming myself with complicated, recipes, bake times, temperatures.  Flour is in the air- on the cupboards, sugar is sprinkled across the floor and every dish will dirty with no room on the counters.  But I love eating them so- tomorrow night that is what I am going to do.  Bake three kinds of cookies, after work and then eat them. 

Will share some recipes if they turn out.  I found this little santa mug last year at a thrift store, it is so old that all the paint has chipped off his sweet little face.  I think it is the cutest.
