Baking Galore!

Wait... who's blog is this?!  You're at the right place, don't worry.

As I mentioned in my 7QTs earlier, my dad and I decided to do a little baking.  We have NEVER done that before, and it was fun.  We only got on each others nerves just a little bit. ;)  Basically we have spent the last few days baking a different cookie.  This is really not my thing, but, I want to brag, just a little.  The cookies came out great AND I had fun photographing them. :)

Peppermint Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Same recipe as above, just took some dough aside and mixed in crushed candy canes and popped them in the oven.  For a little color, I also added some candy cane to the tops of the cookies. :)  They are were delish!

And then!

Peanut Butter Blossoms:

These are actually from today, but I did make some the other day, too.  I cheated with these... sorry for all of you bakers out there!  I used the Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie mix.  I know, I know. Hey, what can I say?  These are my faves.  YUUMMMM!

Keep going!!

These are really good if you like chocolate and mint! :)
Dad and I were also surprised that these didn't spread like normal cookies, rather they puffed up a bit! Is this a normal thing when baking with cocoa? #novicebaker

Even more!

Dark Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cookies with other things added:

I think Santa is excited about these cookies!
So, dad and I decided to get a little creative.  We still had a TON of dark chocolate chips left, but thought we would add some cocoa to the original recipe!  Yum.  

I took some dough aside to make plain chocolate cookies.  After, I added some Hershey's kisses to make some blossoms.  And, of course some sprinkles.  After we were all done, I thought about some candy canes.  Wouldn't that have been good?!

Dad took the rest of the batter and added the chips and crushed walnuts.  He also added some kisses and sprinkles afterwords.

Our coffee table of goodness!
Well, there you have it, friends!  My adventures in baking cookies!  We are done for the year.  Who knows when this bug will hit again!?

Yes, all of the pics are mine.  If you want to use them for something, please link back here!
