No. 16: Make Christmas cookies, like for real.
I attend an annual cookie swap every year. And for the past few years, I’ve purchased cookies for it, because laziness. Well, this year I caved and made these bad boys. Not only was it a miracle that they were edible, it was also a miracle that I didn’t dump a whole bag of flour on Horatio's head the last time I tried to make Christmas cookies — which was also the first year I bought cookies for the swap.
I also may or may not have brought along a bottle of St. Bernardus Christmas Ale. For myself. Because sharing is for quitters and communists. The cranberry and orange zest of the cookie really brought out the notes of OMG THIS IS FLIPPIN’ DELICIOUS and GET IN MY FACE in the beer.
