|Rob and Tom cookie-ready!|
-hosted by my friend Lynn, who also loves cookies, and everyone makes a dozen cookies for everyone in the swap. So, it could be a massive baking effort! Fortunately, this year there are 8 people in the swap.
Tom doesn't bake, but he volunteered to help, since we needed to crank out 84 cookies for the swap (and any extra for us). Originally, I was going to make Oatmeal with cranberries (my concoction), but our friend Jeff said "sugar cookies are for Christmas."

I made the dough, and after an hour in the fridge we put it in the press and Tom squeezed out the cookies as I decorated the finished batches. It took about 4 hours with teamwork, and we made about 120 or so cookies. Of course, I ate 4 immediately!
So, it was great to have Tom helping and Mom's spirit around!
