Cookies and cookies oh my

So - it's the big baking weekend here at the Dough house. Every year for the past 7 years or so I've hosted a cookie exchange. Since I have yet to meet anyone here in town this year I'm just going to be making small batches of a variety of cookies. I'll send some to work with Dan but I'm sure with the 4 of us we won't have much of a problem eating the rest!

We'll be making Sand Tarts which are a holiday must in our house, having been passed down through the generations.

We'll make a traditional frosted sugar cookie from a yummy recipe I got from my sister in law a couple years ago that is a great go to recipe.

We'll be making lemon snowflakes which is a cake mix recipe and you won't believe how easy and tasty they are. These were a big hit from my friend Andrea at my cookie exchange last year.

We'll also be making some oreo bark and candy cane bark from Notes from the Cookie Jar - Holiday Version.

We'll also be making the big gingerbread house. We made the little gingerbread graham cracker houses a couple of weeks ago.

Time to preheat!
