Baking Spirits Bright

Gifting goodness! I baked a variety of cookies to share with Santa, family & friends {see previous post}. This classic chocolate chip cookie recipe is our absolute favorite : )

I postponed baking our favorite cookies to make them {+ holiday memories ☺️} with my son & his fiancé. Unfortunately, our plans changed due to COVID concerns. Of course I was disappointed however, it’s important not to allow negative emotions to control our day. So….I baked the classic CCC to add to my goodie tins. The kitchen counter was a sweet mess 😁 covered in cookie deliciousness, tins, ribbons, peppermints & cellophane. Ready to ship & personally deliver to locals.

In the true spirit of Christmas, I’m gifting freshly baked CC cookies to a few local families. Christmas spirit is in your heart❣️ Add a special touch with wrapping, fill mason jars or ornaments they make great DIY gifts ~ we have the opportunity to shine and brighten another person’s day! “Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone ” Happy Holidays 🎄❄️🌟
