As Visions of Sugar Cookies Danced in Their Heads . . .

Grab a big glass of ice cold milk and belly up to this heaping plate of cookies! Mama Food Whore and I are in full on baking mode for the holidays. Each of us our hosting our annual holiday parties on the 13th and we're getting ready to bake our hearts out in preparation. Mama FW gives away boxes of cookies to each of her guests and this year, I'll be featuring a cookie buffet with these cute little take-out boxes for guests to fill up and take home for favors:

available at Oriental Trading Company

Anyway, back to the cookie madness. Mama FW is going waaaaaaaaay overboard as usual. But I've pared it down to a modest 8 kinds of cookies. We'll be baking and decorating next week. In the coming weeks, I'll post photos and recipes. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this drool-inducing list.
