C is for Cookie

That’s good enough for me!


Lot’s of team work going on to make lots of cookies!


Lots and lots and lots of cookies….

Walnut and Apricot Kiffles


Snicker Doodles


Sand Tarts


Chocolate Chip (with and without walnuts)


We also swapped our previously made cookies.  Now I have 8 different cookies to enjoy over the holidays and lots of time to practice my self control.  Open-mouthed smile


30 Minutes Movement:  Although I absolutely did not want to, I got my 30 minutes in!  I actually stopped watching Elf and did 30 minutes of yoga.  I knew if I didn’t do it in that exact moment, it wasn’t going to happen.

It’s Alive!



I always thought my Nan would buy red and green Rice Krispies.  Since no other family member has been able to find them, I’m thinking that was an incorrect assumption.  It’s more likely that she put a lot of time and love into her cookies and dyed them.  So I did too, because no one likes a drab cookie at Christmas.


Just butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, chocolate chips and M&M’s.


The dry is literally everything but the kitchen sink.  It’s what makes these cookies so so so good.  Flour, baking soda, baking powder, oats, walnuts, coconut, crispies, salt.



Bake for about 10 minutes in a 375* oven.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup coconut

Cream butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix in chocolate chips and M’&M’s.  Mix dry ingredients and add to wet until thoroughly combined.  Drop onto baking sheet.  Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.  Test your self control.  Winking smile



The broken ones totally did not make it to the cookie tins.  Ooops.  Open-mouthed smile


30 Minutes Movement:  More yoga.  Tough to do after the baking, but it got done.  I feel extra accomplished now!
