'Tis the Season, to be Baking ... Fa La Laaaa

On the second night of baking, 
my oven hit 
375 degrees. 

Fa La La

There's a office holiday party on tomorrow, so I'm taking treats. Tonight was night 2 of the holiday baking.

Tuesday night, I made dough for these snickdoodles and a Nestle Tollhouse cookie base. I also made a batch of mint brownie bites (with this recipe, scooped into mini-muffin pans and stuffed with a half of an Ande's mint candy) and a new recipe, a pan of the McCormick Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Brownies

Tonight I made these snicker-doodles and the Tollhouse cookies, also scooped into the mini-muffin pans, half stuffed with a Hershey Kiss and half with a Reese's Peanut Butter cups.
This last batch of snicker-doodles got a little crisper than I like, because I got distracted watching Mary Berry and the last episode of the U.S. ABC version of the Great Holiday Baking Show. (The UK show is so much better, but I love Mary's style.)

I always go a little overboard, but there is enough for the hostess's kids, guests to take home left-overs, people who drive me to have left-overs, and for me to eat too many.

2 doz. PB bites;
2 doz. Kiss bites; 
4 doz. choc. mint browning bites; 
3 doz. snicker-doodles; 
1 tray caramel bars

Wait. How am I taking all this on the train?

Oh ...


Still, this is NOwhere near my holiday baking output of days of yore.
