Every Christmas we get together with my family and we each bring a different cookie or candy recipe and the ingredients needed for that recipe and we just spend the day baking... by the end of the day we have tons of cookies and candy. Since we're in VA this year we were not able to cook with everyone else, but we decided to make some cookies ourselves. The kids love to help in the kitchen (especially Kyler) so we made some Neiman Marcus cookies. They turned out good and the kids had fun helping me make them. Meggie especially enjoyed tasting!
