Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies with Marshmallow Fluff: Day 11 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies

Right now, I should be studying since I have an 8 am final tomorrow morning. Ugh. It’s as if Rutgers purposely chose the most early and ridiculous time to schedule finals. No one wants to wake up for an 8 am, no one. Not to mention my exam is on another campus then the one I live on so I have to get up, get ready (because I refuse to leave the house in my pajamas), and make my way over to another campus, all with buses that only come every 20 minutes. Hello? I have a final I need to take and I am running out of coffee.

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies: Day 10 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies

I can pretty much tell which song is playing within the first few seconds.

Brown Sugar Cookies: Day 5 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies

Yesterday was Thursday and you know what that means? Well yes, Parks and Recreation was on and it was one of the most hilarious episodes I’ve seen in awhile, but there was only one other television show that topped it. If you haven’t guessed, I’m talking about the always hilarious dramedy, Rock Center with Brian Williams.

Molasses Cookies: Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies

Can we talk about the insane weather that has been moving up and down the east coast the past few days? I didn’t want to mention it earlier in the week for fear that I would jinx it and have the 60 degree weather stay around longer than necessary. Come on, 60 degrees in December?? There goes the white Christmas I was hoping for, urg.

The Ultimate Christmas Cookie Post

Or maybe I should say: Non-Denominational Cookie Post, because you don’t have to celebrate Christmas to enjoy all of these cookies. Oh wait, you’re not going to bake 27,000 types of cookies? We can’t be friends.

So I’ve compiled a list of some of the yummiest sounding cookies from my favorite bloggers. I’ll be putting my own spin on some of these bad boys next week, get ready for cookie overload.
