I have to say that the people of my church know how to celebrate the Christmas season! As a new church, we are still in the stage of getting to know each other and thus the holiday invitations are a-flying. So far, I've attended two Christmas craft events and an Advent brunch. This weekend I'm headed to a cookie exchange, caroling outreach, open house, and an "Elf"-themed bake-off -- all four sugar food groups required! (That's the fun stuff. I am also coordinating with one of the young men who lead our mercy ministry outreach to provide services to the homeless and critically ill. More on that later.)
All of this weekend's events require Christmas goodies, so I was glad to discover this list of 27 yummy holiday cookie recipes. The eggnog bars look especially dangerous. So do the chocolate chunk cookies with Nutella. YUM!
If you have a Christmas cookie favorite, please share it here. At least the online recipe exchange is not nearly as dangerous as the real cookie exchange!
