gotta do it



Not only is it not Christmas until I make these cookies, but it's also not Christmas until I eat so many of them.







No more playing around. I mean business now.
Jolly Holiday. For real this time.

We also made these cookies yesterday for teacher's gifts. They are very good so I am happy to give them away (i would eat them all if I didn't!)
We had a hard time rolling them. I was wondering how much time do you leave the dough in the fridge before...
Thanks for the great recipe!

Such cute sprinkles, I've never seen anything like that in the shops round here.
It's certainly getting closer ....!

Cat, this time I left it in the fridge overnight. But an hour should do you. I find that you really have to knead the dough before putting it in the fridge. And then again as you are forming the pretzels. It's all about the kneading. ;)

Robyn: that would explain it! We made the dough about 2 minutes before!!!
I'll know better next year (yes, they are now a tradition!)
Thanks!
