I don't know about most families, but in my family this time of the year we bake for every get together. My mom isn't one to cook, but when Thanksgiving and Christmas comes, she hits the kitchen and breaks out her electric mixer. My mom and I bake six pies for Thanksgiving. This is the only time I see her so excited to be in the kitchen; she isn't one for cooking.
I recently made holiday cookies with Christmas color M&Ms, which were delicious! There is something about holiday themed baked goods that makes people want them more.
Visit my blog site to see the recipe for my holiday M&M cookies! I will admit, I made a beginner baker mistake. I was in the middle of recording the proccess of creating these cookies for my fundimentals of online and digital media class that I accidentally but 2 tablespoons of baking powder instead of 1/2 teaspoon. WOW, those were the largest cookies I had ever seen. Don't make that mistake and always double check the recipe before mixing!
Check out these amazing cookies and enjoy!
