12 Cookies of Christmas

Happy Monday, everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I did 20 hours of baking and discovered one very important thing about myself: I do not like rolling dough.  I fear this rules out several possible career paths for me, but I will learn to live with that.  For now, I need to put a hot compress on my neck and my feet in a salt bath.

BUT I did it!  I baked 12 different cookies (a la 12 Days of Christmas) to share with my favorite peeps just like my mom used to, and it felt really good.  I don’t, however, recommend trying to bake them ALL in 2 days unless you have replacement body parts on-hand.
