Since I'm making holiday cookies today I installed the Christmas music radio to get you in the mood. Choose a station and get listening. My shortbread cookies are so simple they're actually relaxing to make. Just flour, butter, sugar, and any flavorings for variations. Since I use the Cuisinart to do the mixing, they practically make themselves. Today I made double batches of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chip, Vanilla bean, and Ginger molasses. I'm feeling the empty nest a bit, though. This is probably the first holiday season in 21 years I haven't been madly packing up cookies or other gifts for an untold number of teachers. They were important people in our lives, and I raise a cookie to them now. :) I also miss the 2 students who would eat the broken, ugly, or extra cookies. Good luck on your finals!
