stocking up


stocking up on cookie making supplies
some nuts



some chocolate of course




and filling the sugar and flour canisters
to be at the ready come cookie time
I will make a basic dough
then make some as sugar cookies
some with m&ms
some with nuts
and maybe even some with coconut

if you take some of the dough and put a peppermint extract in
and half of it a little red food color
then you take little ropes of red and non colored and
twist them then shape into a candy cane cookie

after all isnt Christmas partly about the Christmas cookies?
Clint Black thinks so........***wink***

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now, Christmas cookies are a special treat
The more she bakes the more I eat
And sometimes I can't get myself to stop
Sometimes she'll wait till I'm asleep
She'll take the ones I didn't eat
And put those little sprinkly things on top

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now those sprinkly things just makes things worse
'Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first
And they're absolutely impossible to resist
Some disappear to who knows where
But I make sure I get my share

And those kids just stand there waiting for the ones I miss

Sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
She gets mad that they're all gone
Before she gets the icing put on
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now there's a benefit to all of this
That you might have overlooked or missed
So now let me tell you the best part of it all
Every time she sticks another batch in the oven
There's 15 minutes for some kissin' and'a huggin'
That's why I eat Christmas cookies all year long

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
