We do not celebrate Christmas.
Usually, this does not bother me. However, when it comes to baking cookies, it does bother me. Because, I like cookies more than the average human being. Therefore, I really need an excuse to make cookies. And I will not let religion dictate my cookie baking. And therefore, I present you with ...holiday cookie baking day.
In college, my best friend and I used to go to my parents house, spend the whole day baking up a storm, and then deliver cookies to our sorority sisters. Now that we are out of college, and "grown up", we still want to do the exact same thing. So, I gathered some friends (minus the college BFF who was on a fabulous and well deserved vacation with her husband), and we proceeded to make our holiday cookies.

3. Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites http://twotinykitchens.com/2011/02/23/peanut-butter-pretzel-bites/
4. Really disgusting toffee that did not turn out at all. It stuck to your teeth and was just really not good. But I mean if you want some, I can totally give you some.
4. and of course....sugar cookies to decorate
You need not celebrate the holiday to enjoy the cookies.
