Christmas Cookie Baking Day

We've started a yearly tradition of going to mom's the week of Christmas to bake cookies all day! We each bring ingredients for 3 or 4 cookies....bake them....split all the cookies between each family....leave at the end of the day with far too many cookies & seemingly looking like we've baked for days! PERFECT HUH?!!
What kids don't like to play with dough?.......
.......or sugar!
Kayd got her hands on some Peppermint Meringue Cookies a couple months ago & wouldn't stop eating them! I knew those needed to be added to the yearly Christmas Cookie List!
So for my 1st batch they taste YUMMY but they're more rounded rather than having that typical meringue look! It's more about the taste though right?!
In between baking there was snacking....always good snacking at moms!
Also a 1st was mom making Gingerbread cookies with the girls! My youngest loved this the most!
Did I mention we snack in between baking??
Auntie is always a constant in making sugar cookies with the girls.....letting their creative spirits run crazy!
AND we always have some kind of yummy dinner before going home......
Another successful baking year getting us a little closer to that magical day.......
