Christmas Baking

So, yesterday I decided to get a start on my Christmas baking. I came across this recipe I had bookmarked online while looking through my recipes for a gift for someone. I found what may be the only-cookie-I'll-ever-bake recipe: Chewy Molasses Spice Cookies.

Now, I don't normally bake cookies. I'm more of a pies, breads, upside down cakes kind of girl. I don't know why. Something about making cookies seems hard or time consuming. But not these puppies! They were definitely quick to put together and they were easy to make. I happened to have everything I needed in the house which is one of the reasons I decided to make them. That and Adam made this "I would really, really like some holiday cookies" face so I had to do it. I came home from work last night to see that a good dent had been made to the cookie container, so I guess they must have been good! Now that I've made my trial run and passed, I'll be making these for Christmas!

I also found a holiday eggnog recipe that I'm dying to try. Adam wants to do a trial run of that too (shocking!). So, I'll be sure to let you know how that turns out.

Have you started holiday baking yet? What are you making for goodies at your house this holiday season?

Please post the recipe!! I hate baking cookies, but if they're that easy then I might give it a try.
