Happy almost Christmas!  😀

So it’s 2 days until Christmas and so many people are on the road on their way to the village or Christmas shopping. For the very first time in years, I shopped Christmas week. Usually I’m done with shopping first week then relax with a cup of tea and watch everyone run around stuck in traffic.. 🙂 wicked huh!

Todays cookies is almost same as the ones I made last year. I’ve decided to make it my basic cookie dough then add other ingredients to it depending on what type I want to make. So far I have created 3 cookies from it, the butterscotch fingers I shared last year, todays chocolate cookies and coconut cookies I hope to share on Saturday. It’s all part of the holiday spirit, what ever you do, don’t forget to make ice cream at home for kids at home.

20-25 Mini Cookies
