It is tradition in my family to make and decorate sugar cookies for Christmas every year. We have a kick-ass recipe passed down to us from a good friend of my grandpa and we usually just use store-bought icing (is that cheating?). Anyways, this year we got a little ambitious and decided to bake a LOT more than just our regular sugar cookies. In the end, we rolled up a batch of buckeyes (also tradition), tons of sugar cookies, some peanut butter and Hershey kiss cookies, and some of this bark.
One of my oldest and best best friends Kristina came over to chat while we cooked and she helped my older brother decorate the sugar cookies. It's so fun to bake with friends!

Today is going to be filled with church, yummy dinner, some fancy clothes, and lots of family. Happy Christmas Eve everyone!!!!!!!
