I can’t believe it’s this time of year again! The holidays, loaded with family and friends, love and laughter, a whole lotta food and a ridiculous amount of desserts! My favorite time of year… and not just for the permission to overindulge a bit!

I love the atmosphere, the crazy shoppers, the Christmas music playing throughout the stores. The lights and decorations strewn up around the malls and various town centers make me simply gleeful. The scents of evergreen, and sweet mint from candy canes are addicting. The cozy scarves and over-sized sweaters, the eggnog!, the food, the traditions and celebrations, the holiday parties and sparkles everywhere, and don’t forget about allll that holiday baking!

I find myself trying to survive off cookies, cakes, butternut squash, coffee, and wine this time of year, oh and a little eggnog mixed in there! 😉 I feel like people either love or hate eggnog, and I , for one, am a huge lover of it. Wherever you come down on eggnog, you should try baking with it. It’s awesome.

Cookies are one of my favorite things to bake year round, but at Christmas, it’s even more fun. The flavors, the sugar cookie decorating parties, the holiday spirit mixed into the dough just makes them that much better, and making platters of cookies to bring to your friends and neighbors, is way too much fun, and a great way to spread the Christmas cheer!

Add these cinnamon chip cranberry oatmeal cookies to your gift boxes this year. They’re soft and chewy on the inside, and slightly crisp along the edges, they’re sweet, with a little tart from the fresh cranberries, and most importantly, they taste fantastic! Enjoy!

Time to organize your cookie trays, friends! Along with Alaina’s chewy, wonderful oatmeal cookies, make sure you check out Jamie’s orange cranberry cookies and Rachel’s red velvet cookies too!
