Baking Day

 Don't you love having a baking day around the holidays?
My sister-in-law and my cousin came over to help make dozens of treats!
We made:
Oreo Truffles:
1 pound oreos crushed
8 oz. cream cheese
Dipping Chocolate
-Just mix the crushed oreos with the cream cheese until it forms a consistency like cookie dough.  Then roll them into 1 inch balls and put them in the fridge to firm up.  After 15-30 minutes, take them out and dip them in melted dipping chocolate.
Soft Gingerbread Cookies
(I cheated and just bought the Betty Crocker Mix.  I still haven't found a made-from-scratch gingerbread that I'm in love with)
My too-cute-for-words-identical-twin-nieces helping themselves to some oreo truffles :)

Every year I buy cookies tins after Christmas when they are 75% off at Walgreens.
Then I pack them away with my Christmas stuff until the next year.
That way I always have a cute, "free" gift ready to give to a neighbor or friend.
Every surface of my house was covered in cookies!
So fun!
