Cinnamon Chip Cranberry Oatmeal cookies are the new addition to my Christmas cookie baking list.  I mean really, who could resist the warmth of cinnamon chips and the sweet/tart of cranberries?  I know I certainly couldn’t!

Making cookies seems to go hand in hand with Christmas, doesn’t it?  I have a confession to make.  I am not much of a baker.  There, I have said it!  My cookies often come out flat and over cooked.  I think I work the batter to much.  

These Cinnamon Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies were the exception.  They came out crisp on the edges and soft and chewy on the inside – just the way a cookie should.  Since they have oatmeal in them, I think they are healthy.  That is my story and I am sticking to it!

Cinnamon Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

 These cookies are sweet, tart and delicious.  I know that any of your co-workers, family or friends would love them.  I really think you would too!

A few of my other good friends have been busy in the kitchen also.  

Pecan Tassies

Susan from Organized 31 made these Pecan Tassies, they remind her of her Mom’s Pecan Pie.  Susan said, “My mom makes the very best pecan pie. The. very. best.  It’s so delicious that I can only eat one bite (no kidding). That has always seemed wasteful to me. My dilemma was solved about 16 years ago when we were stationed in Japan and my dear friend, Liz (when you’re stationed overseas, your friends become like family and Liz’s family is part of my family now),  gave me this cookie recipe for Pecan Tassies. Each one is  a bite-sized (bite and a half, really) pecan pie and it’s a holiday favorite around my house.”

I love Pecan Pie and think I will give these a try!  

Pudding Mix Gingerbread Cookies

Corinne from WonderMom Wannabe cooked up these wonderful Gingerbread cookies.  Corninne said her whole family  loves Gingerbread cookies and these  soft, delicious gingerbread cookie  uses butterscotch pudding mix in place of the molasses and don’t require rolling out and cutting.

Retro Sugar Cookies

Last, but not least, Holly from Coconut Heads Survival Guide made these Retro Sugar Cookies.  Here is Holly’s story behind these delicous cookies,  “My Grandma Charlotte passed at Christmas time when I was a baby.  It was hard on my Mom, but we made her sugar cookies every year to honor her memory.  This is the REAL DEAL.  It’s not some fancy schmancy dough in a bag that is artificially made to create the most perfect Martha-Stewart-Pin-Worthy cookies.  It’s old-timey dough and an old-timey recipe.”

Well, are you hungry for some cookies now?  I know I am!  What is your favorite Christmas cookie?  I would love to hear about it.
