3334  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Your favourite christmas cookie recipes needed...please! on: December 19, 2009 12:48:19 PM
We dont really have a christmas cookie tradition here in Ireland, but in the interests of having a 90% handmade christmas I thought I might make a bunch of boxes of cookies for family and friends. I am having trouble selecting recipes. There are millions online and i have a ton more in cookery books. i am looking for tasty, easy, fast, keeping cookie recipes. Have you a favourite one that you could share with me?..or is there a cookie thread somewhere that I havent found

Ok prepare to be extremely jealous. i got an amazing partner in SevsOnlyGirl and she completely spoiled me. She sent so much stuff that I tried to double up in some of the photos so that I wouldnt completely overwhelm you with pictures.
Something edible, a ton of candy,  and something to drink, holiday punch sachets. (they unaccountably didnt make it to the picture..Some of the candy is a little...um...nibbled too...!)

Something that is always in her purse
Something sentimental

This made me smile. she always has a notebook and pen in her purse. I was going to send her the exact same thing! except I forgot to put it in the package!..these pens are really nice to write with too. The pin was given to her by her sister and I was really touched that she sent it to me and its gorgeous!


My daughter specialises in taking particularly unflattering pix of me! this is the best one! I am wearing a gorgeous velvet top that Sevs sent me as   Something that I want it is so gorgeous. textures of clothing are very important to me, this is soft and gorgeous and very warm. Around my neck is something in her favourite colour Its a big bold gorgeous green stone, I am not sure what type, agate I think. As an extra she sent this fabulous crocheted scarf. I really love it, love the shade and its also so warm (essential at the moment as the weather here is freezing!) In my hand I have a real 'smores kit!!!   a winter essential We have tried to reproduce them as best as we could here in Ireland, but they dont sell graham crackers here, so now we get to try the real deal. Over our open fire in the sitting room. mmm..


Now this is a nice photo of my daughter. she scored some great extras, the tinkerbell nightie she is wearing. She wore it as a t-shirt all day. The christmas cross-stitch kit that she is busy working on, and the great sock slippers (I got a fun pair in red with santa fur on the top!)


something to wear and something from a favourite holiday She stencilled this excellent t-shirt as a witchy pagan type I love it!! and a santa ornament..he sadly lost the tip of his hat, but fear not...keep reading...

a kitchen essential, something that smells good,
she made the most fabulous lipbalm, pinacolada and root beer flavours..yummy and a rubber husband I lmao at that name, its a silicone jar opener, the most used thing in her kitchen , soon to be the same in mine. Also some more christmas stuff. I love these candycane carriers.


The other thing not pictured something not crafty is a book 'lamb' its sitting by my bed, next in the queue

and for those of you worried about santas broken hat...cease and desist your anxiety, here he is in all his glory, a dab of E6000 and he is happy


thanks so much SevsOnlyGirl, the package was amazing and I feel totally spoiled..

 I adore the fabric too. I only had a fat quarter, I found it in a market in London, it was ridiculously expensive, but I couldnt resist as it is so gorgeous

Sevs I am so glad you received and found some things in there that you like! The roses photo doesn't appeared to have survived the journey terribly well!
