Can you believe Christmas is only 3 weeks away?  I guess it’s time to start planning holiday desserts!  Check out the links below if you’re planning a cookie swap with friends.  On a funny note, Huffington Post posted an article this week ranking the best and worst Christmas cookies.  A word to the wise: unless you’re a seasoned baker with a secret recipe, don’t bring biscotti!

I have a friend who likes to bake over a dozen different varieties and give them away.  It takes days, but she looks forward to it all year.  If this sounds fun to you, have at it!  However, take your first opportunity to “take one thing off” by resisting someone else’s overly high holiday expectations.  If it’s better for you, make just one kind of cookie…and love every bite.
