One of my favorite Christmas traditions is spending a whole day at my parents house and baking cookies until we're sick and tired of them:)
(sick and tired of cookies, not of my parents:)
When we got to town yesterday morning, C's boys were busy working...
So we all donned our aprons and plunged into the various cookie doughs.
Cindy and Nicole making Never Fail Sugar Cookies.
Jopi was tasting the dulce de leche while making Alfajores.
Chocolate Peppermint Stars
Choco-Lavas, Chocolate Crinkles or Holstein Crinkles.
Gingersnaps, a lot of them!
"Date Rolls" (I don't know what they're really called, my Mom had baked them before we got there)
Russian Teacakes (or Mexican Wedding Cakes)
Never Fail Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing
12 different kinds of cookies in one day!
(baked and frosted by 7 kids, 3 grown-ups and taste-tested by my Dad!)
I took this picture after we were done. We were very tired by then, and I usually don't look quite like this! (It's me on the right side, C is on the left)
We had fun, but I don't feel like baking today...
