Tip Tuesday--Christmas Cookies

I know this is probably a bit too late for 99% of you, but it just dawned on me today that I wanted to bake Christmas cookies, but I didn't want to have a lot of cookies sitting around the house AND I didn't want to eat giant cookies, because I have a bad habit of not eating just one cookie at a time.  

So I figured out my plan. 

I mixed up the dough for four types of cookies and then put the majority of the dough into the fridge.  

I did bake one sheet full of each kind of cookie today so that we could leave a few out for Santa (J wrote out a note for him) and our Elf which returned TODAY.  




Because we will have people visiting over the next few days I figured I could bake a little bit at a time so they would be fresh each time some one new comes to visit.  

PLUS I am not as likely to eat just the dough.  The same is not true for other members of my household, but with a carefully placed note on each container that reads 'do not eat', I will be able to keep them out.  

So from my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
