This year, we baked close to 20 dozen cookies, plus I made two sheets of Christmas Cracker “Candy” and three-and-a-half dozen Oreo truffles. The only new recipe I tried was for spritz cookies, and the recipe itself is basically just a shortbread cookie–it’s using the cookie press that was new. That will definitely take some practice before I routinely get nice cookies out of it!

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
I don’t want to bake or decorate another cookie for a very long time! I’m not opposed to eating them, though, which is a good thing, because I need to find the counter that I’m pretty sure is still under all of these cookies!

can i have the recipe for the cracker candy?
It’s so easy…Preheat oven to 400. Line a 10 x 15 (approximately…use what you have) cookie sheet with sides with foil. Place a single layer of saltines on the cookie sheet. Melt 2 sticks of butter and 3/4 c. light brown sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil, stirring constantly, for three minutes. Pour butter mixture evenly over saltines; bake for five minutes. Let stand for a minute, then sprinkle 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips over the crackers, spreading as they melt. Cool completely, then crack into pieces. Refrigerate until serving.
