      I LOVE the Betty Crocker Cookie Icing – it fills in the gaps and hardens to look smooth like in the pictures above. It’s great!

    My mouth is watering! I love me some holiday sweets! Those cookie drops look good…are those the ones that you put a cookie in a cupcake? Or just bake the cookie in a muffin tin?

    Cookies are my favorite and I recently made some Pumpkin Spiced and Sprinkled Cookies that were very holiday-ey. http://www.semihealthnut.blogspot.com/2011/11/semi-healthy-pumpkin-spiced-and.html

    Also made some yummy Sugar and Spice and Everything Awesome cookies http://www.semihealthnut.blogspot.com/2011/11/sugar-and-spice-and-everything-awesome.html

    Another crowd pleaser is Lemon Doodle Cookies (this post has a link to even MORE cookies) http://semihealthnut.blogspot.com/2011/10/i-heart-cookies-lemon-doodles.html

    Thanks for sharing this recipe round-up!

    This page is getting bookmarked for sure! :-)

    You’re torturing me with these pictures! They all look so good. I am definitely emailing my mother the link to this post, and we’ll do some serious baking for Christmas.

    SN- I printed your Turkey & Veggie Soup and guess what?!? We’re having that for dinner sometime next week (probably Monday night)! EEEeeeeeeeeekkk. (Sorry- it looked so good). Thank you for sharing. I’ll let you know how much my family liked it.

    Yummm!! Those all look incredible! I’m so excited to start getting some baked goods in the mail, from the cookie swap!

    A recipe I made not too long ago was this one for peanut butter cookies. I give all the credit to Jessica from “How Sweet it is.” It’s completely her recipe, and I love her for sharing it! :)

    Yum!! I don’t usually make sugar cookies, but those crackled sugar cookies might just make an appearance at my house this year!

    These all look so good! I do not even know where to start as far as baking them. All of them? 😉 As usual, thanks for sharing your fabulous dessert recipes. I hope your busy week is going well! I love your little reminder to yourself that more hours=more Christmas money. Ever since you mentioned that yesterday, I am keeping that in my mind too! :)

    Okay that’s not even fair!! Too many choices! You’re going to make me the hero of my church’s young adults annual cookie exchange! That is, if I decide which type of cookie to make in time to make it to the party! 😉
