Today I baked

and baked and baked.

First, two bar cookies: English Matrimonials, basically an oatmeal/brown sugar concoction on top & bottom with a filling of currant jelly. Magic Cookie Bars were next -- layering butter, graham cracker crumbs, chopped pecans, chocolate chips, coconut........drizzled over with sweetened condensed milk. Next came two batches of oatmeal/chocolate chip/raisin cookies. Finally I made lemon bars which are always a favorite. Tomorrow is sugar cookies, cut out and frosted. Those I really take time with, so wanted to do them separately. About a third of the cookies go to work with me on Thursday which is secret santa day. The rest will travel in my suitcase for the family. I am so glad my grandson can now eat flour -- he was gluten intolerant until the middle of this year. My daughter-in-law however will not be able to indulge since she suffers from that "affliction." And I will avoid the cookies with nuts but family and guests (and my coworkers) will have a feast.

Hope your day was spent as happily as mine.

I'm always impressed with someone who is willing to bake so many different kinds of cookies! I'm sure they will all be yummy. Happy holidays!
