It’s 12 Weeks of Christmas time again!!! You have to go over and see Brenda at Making Meal Magic! She puts this great blog hop together for us all! Every Thursday for the next 9 weeks you will be delighted with yummy treats for that happiest of all baking days!!! This week at The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen it is all about,”Just how easy can we make this?” Well foodie friends we can make this Very Easy so easy in fact that I am almost embarrassed to tell you just how easy. We’ll get to that in a minute. First I want to tell you all about our Christmas Eve Family Tradition. I am like a big kid around Christmas and I can’t wait to open my presents and have others open what I have purchased for them. I found though as I got older Christmas pretty much petered out after breakfast….. you come to a point in life where you don’t sit and stare at your toys and play with them all day. In order to stretch out Christmas a bit and to appease my need to open a gift, on Christmas Eve either right before or after Mid-Night Mass (depending if we have gone or not…. bad I know) we each get to open a present. Now mind you this is not just any present under the tree, it is a present prescribed by me. Each year it is the same gift. We all get brand new warm and fuzzy Jammies!! That way the next morning we are all in our new P.J.’s for our Photo’s. Of course they are almost always plaid and they always have a matching theme! It appeases the Type A control freak in me! I’d give you a photo sample but I am sure no one want to see me with crazy bed hair!
Now back to the crazy easy, crazy good cookies! The secret is (drum roll please) Cake Mix! You heard me right Cake Mix! Can you believe a box could make anything as beautiful as this?
These are can’t resist, have to eat, can’t stop gobbling up cookies!!! Just ask my co-workers! They are loving this 12 Weeks of Christmas!
