The Great Cookie Extravaganza 2015

We had our annual cookie baking day this past weekend. First I had a 12 mile training run because if you are going to eat cookies all day, you better run first, haha. We have been doing this for a few years now and you can see my post about them last year here. We make double, triple, and quadruple batches of several different types of cookies. The classics include chocolate chip, gingerbread, snicker doodle, peanut butter kisses, and sugar. We also made chocolate crinkles because those have been popular and we tried out chocolate dipped shortbread this year and I think those turned out really good as well. We freeze the cookies and take them out for parties and what not as it gets closer to Christmas. I will be bringing some to my work party tomorrow! Everly and Teddy helped decorate some sugar cookies this year. Everly loves to pile on the sprinkles. So many cookies. We must have a problem because as we were making them we kept saying, "we might need to make more." We loooooove cookies and we look forward to this day every year! Also, this year there was even a spreadsheet and a cookie binder because we take this job seriously!

We start buying ingredients weeks before to take advantage of all of the baking sales at the grocery store.

I am not even a huge gingerbread fan, but you just have to make them. They turned out really good, too. 
Here is also a quick little video from our cookie baking!
