Five dozen freshly baked cookies

I'm counting down to Christmas with my 12 favorite things; today is day five and I've been making cookies!

 Well, I made one cookie, and the peanut butter squares (no oven required). And hopefully when I finish this blog post I will mix up the dough for ginger bread cookies and then I can bake them tomorrow evening, since the dough requires several hours of refrigeration before it can be rolled.
Chocolate Muzzettes
These are the cookies I made today, the Chocolate Muzzetts. Though this is last years photo, they look the same, haha. (Click through to flickr for the recipe!)

I also did a super fast and simple DIY -- Mustache Gloves! I just cut the stashes out of felt and glued them on to your average pair of $2 Magic Gloves; but the results are all fun and games.

I'm now one week into the No Repeats Challenge; it hasn't been to tough thus far, but it's only been one week! Well, I might even go so far as to say two weeks because I know what I'm wearing through Saturday and weather or not I'll even be getting dressed on Sunday remains to be seen. (The day after Christmas is typically a pajama/movies/leftovers day.)

I can see it being hard to not repeat these pieces for the next few weeks -- skinny jeans, basic grey top, bright blazer and leopard scarf; all very easily remixed.

I don't know what I need more. mustache cookies or gloves. Probably the latter. Adorable DIY!

I've in the kitchen for hours this holiday. I'm sick of cookies. You're not missing out.

Trystan L. Bass said...

Coincidentally, we had a cookie exchange at my office today, so I baked yesterday & brought home a huge variety of cookies this evening. Good timing on your post ;-)

Londyn said...

You and your fabulous cookies look AMAZING! Now - I need your recipes!! Especially for those first mint choc. cookies...


Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

AHHH. My sister has recently been baking like crazy. And not going to lie, I have been LOVING IT! Your cookies look so delicious, yum.

And you look adorable. I'm loving the bright red blazer (how much does it scream "CHRISTMAS IN FIVE DAYS"?!) and those MITTS. Ah, fabulous!

And congrats on the posts! That's crazy. You're more than doubling me :O.

BTW - what camera do you have? It looks fabulous.

Modesty is Pretty said...

hahaha those gloves are an amazing idea and boy did you get me hungry with all that baking, I have a sweet tooth you know, in fact my friend who retired two years ago still comes by every christmas with little sweets for me, among them my fave, gingerbread cookies! I love those little suckers! By the way you look very pretty and so chic in your outfit.

Vanessa said...

The mustache gloves are too cute! I just love them. Whimsical, and creative are you, indeed!
You've got me wishing I had actually baked something this year. Usually, I'm the baker in the family and make nearly 10 different kinds of Christmas cookies. This year? One lonely batch during a cookiefest with friends. I already ate them. My family is going to be so mad when I come home empty handed on Christmas Eve!
And... I'm glad to see my camera cookies made the cut! (I made them for a Christmas potluck for my camera club. Last year, obviously. Since I'm such a slacker this year! ha)
