Christmas Cookie Baking Party!

On Friday night, a few of my friends got together and made yummy Christmas cookies! We had the party in the church kitchen, where we had extra space and more oven room. It was a lot of fun. In fact, maybe too much fun. There were times when we were talking and forgot to get the cookies out of the oven. And if you know church ovens, you know that they are always extra hot, so you have to watch things!

There were six of us that got together. We had each of the pastor's wives (except for Terry), our church secretary and Mindy. Mindy is the sister of our youth pastor, so we let her tag along.
Sabrina (our youth pastor's wife) and Mindy brought yummy appetizers, tea, coco and hot cider to have while we chatted and started to make our cookies. Rachel and I also brought the Christmas music to put us in the holiday spirit. We had so much fun just catching up and getting to know each other better! We have such a great group of ladies at our church!

By the end of the night we had:

-Chocolate peanut butter fudge
-Peanut butter cookies
-Peppermint bark
-Mexican wedding cake cookies
-Maple cookies
-Chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips
-Chocolate and peanut butter layer bars
-Butterscotch and white chocolate layer bars

We divided everything up and each got to take lots of goodies home! Reed and I have enjoyed eating some of each kind, but still have many left over! But that's okay. Luckily cookies work for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Lots of sugar, but oh so much yumminess!
