2011 Cookie Baking Weekend 1

Last weekend I started my holiday cookie baking. I'll be making 11 kinds total, most from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.

I made Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles, which were a big hit and most people's favorite last year. Cayenne pepper adds an unexpected kick to these chocolate cookies with a sugar-cinnamon topping.
I also made Gingerbread Men! Not only was this my first time making them, but I can't even remember the last time I ate gingerbread cookies. Maybe as a kid? I'm not a very patient person, nor am I good at decorating, so cutting these out and decorating them was a bit of a pain for me. But I think they turned out cute, and they're absolutely delicious. Get the recipe here!
This weekend I'm making at least four more kinds...and loving it. Is there anything better than eating cookie dough???


  1. The recipes you mentioned look awesome - anything gluten free in there???
