Guess what? I've eaten a lot of food since the end of October! I've eaten some pumpkin pie, hearty soups, Christmas cookies, Christmas Stollen, big main-dish salads, fondue, smoothies, and lots of snackies. Before it gets any more ridiculously out-of-season, let's take a look at some of my Christmas cookies. I was totally excited to make Christmas cookies with my son this year. He had a blast rolling out the dough and helping me make the Gingerbread Cut-Out Cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.
I mean, seriously....are these things cute, or what?
He absolutely loved it! He's a baseball fanatic, even though he's only 2. He's a Yankees fan just like his Mommy!
These gingerbread cookies were probably the best ones I've ever had, and they were super, super easy to make. They were soft, perfectly spiced, and craaazy delicious. I'll make them again next year for sure!
I also made a batch of 21st-Century Carob Chip Cookies, also from VCIYCJ. These were pretty rad little cookies. They had whole-wheat pastry flour, carob chips, roasted peanuts, raisins, flaxseed, and Sucanat in them - all good, healthy stuff. (So good and healthy, in fact, that I didn't feel bad about eating 4 of them in one go.)
At least I only have to wait another 11 months!
