You can call me 'Mom mom!'

That's what Kam calls me now ;) At first I was thinking she was just babbling {as she always does}, but she only says this ~ 'Mom Mom!' ~ When I have put her down and she thinks she needs me ASAP. It is pretty darn cute, if I do say so.

In other news . . . I have a cookie exchange to go to this week. HELP!

We spent the better part of yesterday making cookies.

We made some jam thumbprint cookies. We also made a Sandies type of cookie with a cream cheese and peppermint filling. And lastly we made some chocolate and mint chip/cream cheese bars. Though, I don't know that bars are really cookies. Are they? Is it legal to bring them to a cookie exchange? Who's the authority, anyone know?

So, here's the thing. I can't decide which to take. I think the bars are out. They're a bit more work, and I'd feel like I need to cut them out into circles so they'd look more cookie-ish. Yeah, the bars are definitely out. I like the look of the jam thumbprints {in a taste test they were preferred 2 to 1~ my parents liked the jam, Sierra liked the peppermint/cream cheese. And I cannot taste right now, as I'm smack dab in the middle of a cold, so I couldn't tell ya which I like the best. Kenners didn't care for any of them. I'm sorry, but who doesn't like cookies? And Jeremy's been at work for the last 48 hours, so he hasn't had the pleasure.}


I don't know. Should I just take the jam ones? Are these over done at cookie exchanges? Should I find a different recipe altogether? Anyone?

{Or should I just shut up, bake the dang cookies, and not worry about it? I think that's my vote.}

Those cookies are gorgeous! I love cookie exchanges! How lucky that you get to go to one. I was going to have one this year but time got away from me :)

Have a great time -- I am going to make cookies this week for sure!

XOXO

I have been to a few cookie exchanges and have never seen any mom make those thumbprint cookies - so go for it! As for me, I would have my hubby make them...he's the master cookie maker around here, and I'm the cookie monster :)

My vote is for the jam thumbprint because they are my all-time favorite. But those peppermint ones look good too.

I've never made the jam thumbprints but they are so pretty! The peppermint ones seem very Christmas-y though...so my vote would be for them!

I love cookie exchanges and baking at Christmas!!
I say go for the thumbprints. They are a little more work, and I don't think many other people will bring them.
yumm...I am sure what ever you decide to bring will be a hit! Share what you bring home with us! {wink}

Wow- you did a lot of baking! I think bars are perfectly acceptable for cookie exchanges and there is no need to make them round! My mom just made the jam thumbprint ones and they are delicious so I vote for those!

I think you should take them all. It is fun to get variety of cookies and those all sound fabulous. I sure wish I enjoyed baking and cooking. *sigh*
