Yesterday was my annual cookie party. We made a few piles of cookies and caught up with old friends...

Some of the bounty:

Peanut Butter kisses (I used dark chocolate kisses; so good!) (cookies from Vegan with a Vengeance)
Chocolate Candy Cane cookies (idea from Pioneer Woman, actual cookies from Veg News) -- I halved the recipe and used a stand mixer, which may have been why they turned out like chocolate clouds. I think I actually like PW's recipe better, even though it's not vegan. Maybe I can tweak it a bit next year.

And copious piles of Bakerella's gingerbread! I even have a pile left in my fridge, so I was thinking about possibly making a gingerbread house...

Then for fun, I googled "gingerbread tardis".... totally ridiculous!

I have a feeling though, if my husband is involved, our gingerbread house would look something like this:

(if his skills at Minecraft are any indication. :) Yesterday, the two girls who were visiting called his game "Legoland with zombies", which might be the most apt description I've ever heard!)

Merry Christmas, everyone!!
