I had quite a baking adventure last weekend. I went searching online for a new cookie recipe, hoping to find something quilter-appropriate since the point was to make gift boxes for a couple of my coworkers. I found instructions for Checkerboard Cookies on the Americas Test Kitchen website.
I’d never made anything like them before, but decided to get even fancier and make Nine-Patch Cookies.
Making the vanilla and chocolate doughs went well, and slicing the dough logs up and realigning them was totally fun…no seam allowances to worry about with cookies! Here’s my cookie log, being sliced for baking:

They looked cute even before they were baked!
Here they are, fresh from the oven. Not bad for my first attempt!
So here’s my question for you: What holiday cookies are you baking up this year? Happy snacking, and a Merry Christmas to all.
