If you’re looking for a partridge in a pear tree, I regret to inform you that you’re in the wrong place.

If, however you are looking for writings about Christmas cookies, I got the stuff.

Cookie #1:  Spritz


These have never not been on my cookie list.  It’s probably the simplest and it’s been my hands down favorite cookie my whole life.  I think they just fit into your hand when you’re a kid really well.  The fact that they’re mostly butter and that the gun gives them an awesome texture helps too.  Nathan, not knowing all this bought me a new spritz gun for my birthday 8 months before we started dating.  I didn’t think that my affection could be bought so easily, but if I was being honest, that’s when I REALLY started being interested in him.  I was struck by how good of a gift it was (kitchen gadgets speak to a deep place in my heart) and how generous of a gift it was for him to give to someone who was just a casual friend in a big circle of friends.  But he’s a generous guy.  So you could say that this is the cookie that brought us together.

Don’t forget to check out The 12 Days of Christmas (Cookies) on Flickr that I created.  Feel free to add pictures of your own Christmas cookies.  The more the merrier.

  1. Yummy, I can’t wait to visit Eitsy again and have tea and cookies:-)

    According to the photo classes i’ve taken, the professor would mention, if you are interested in the glitter shining through in the photo, simply put a lamp on the side of the cookies shining down on them, the light source from the side allows ‘extra’ illuminance on the cookies and glitter (where it counts) 😉

    Yay for perfectly cut and delicately trimmed cookies!! I can just imagine how tasty they are (were) 🙂
