Christmas is a time for...baking! If your family is anything like mine, everyone want a different cookie. Personally, I'm big fan of chocolate chip made with a mix of dark and semi sweet chocolate. My parents claim they don't like chocolate (is that even possible), so they like their white chocolate chip cookies. And my brother prefers just dark chocolate. I could go on but you get the point. So this year, instead of making a bunch of different cookies, I decided to make a good solid cookie base and then mix-in everyone's preferences. I ended up making dark chocolate chip, triple chocolate (dark, semi-sweet, and white chocolate) and white-chocolate cranberry cookies. And they were a hit (we finished off 4 dozen in 2 days)! And I looked like a superstar! What more could a girl ask for?
