Last year I couldn't make holiday cookies becaue I broke my hand. So nothing was going to stop me this year. I made 4 types today and will make maybe 3 more this week.

First up are vegan Spritz cookies. I've been wanting to make these for so long. They are such a childhood memory for me. I remember making these with me maa for christmas. I used a cookie press that I received from my bridal shower in march. It didn't work to well but it was good enough for me. Eventually I loaded the rest of the dough into a pastry bag and just made little circle blobs. I covered some of them with natural pink sprinkles. The color didn't come thru as much as I wanted it too.

I also made Dreena's Chocolate Chip Cookies for the first time. I like them alot and they are super super easy to make. Although I find most cookies easy to make. Also in the oven today were Oatmeal-Coconut Cookies and Snickerdoodle cookies that I found on some vegan recipe page. They were ok. I'm not thrilled about them. The Snickerdoodles I didn't even take a picture of because they look strange and taste alittle strange. Oh well. Not everything you find on the internet is good.

Other cookies I have planned for this week are a classic peanut butter cookies and some jam dot's. I might make brownies also just to take the place of the Snickerdoodles.

Friends of ours gave us Rangers vs. Devils hockey tickets for free. It's kinda like seeing a Mets vs. Yankee's game. I don't understand hockey too much and am usually not paying any attention when something big happens buts its free and they are kickass seats. I gotta get ready. See you's tomorrow maybe.

just because i was a fan doesn't mean I understood what was going on...i just liked looking at boys in uniforms.

That's some subtle wisdom right there.

I'd never heard the word "snickerdoodle" before I read this entry.

Now I can't escape it.

I just saw Spritz cookies on this magazine cover the other day and they looked quite cute but time consuming. Wishing I lived close enough to pop by for a taste!!!

Dreena's homestyle choc chip cookies are one of my fav's!

I think the pink sprinkled ones are adorable. And the chocolate chip cookies look just like a cookie should.
Where'd you get your spritz recipe, if you don't mind? My faux mother in law sent me one for xmas.
