The best part of the holidays is always food- especially when you get to make it! A family friend of ours always has a cookie exchange party, and I was especially excited this year because I had tons of new recipies to try out. My mom and I ended up making three cookies: the ginger orange cookies that I’ve already posted about, holiday hershey kiss cookies (recipe at HowSweetEats), and my mom’s pumpkin cinnamon whoopie pies. It was definitely a lot of work and dishwashing, but it was definitely worth it. The only problem I had was with the chocolate cookies; they were fine, but not as soft and cakey as I had expected. Everything else was great, and we were so happy that we stole some extra to save for later.
