Cookie Time Is A Comin'

Ladies, it's time to get prepared for all those cookies you'll be expected to make this holiday season.  It may just be the first of November but before you know it those Cookie Exchange Party invitations will be coming to your mailbox and inbox.

Of course I'll provide easy and tasty recipes as the season gets closer but if you're planning ahead, here are a couple new resources.

Gourmet Magazine just release their Cookie Book featuring nearly 70 years of favorite cookie recipes.  Buy it now at Amazon or get the recipe for the Polish Apricot-filled cookies here on the Today Show.

Not the baking-type or the crafty-type?  Make it easy on yourself.  Order a couple of these mason jar cookie mixes from Simply Divine Desserts.  Use the mix from one to make your cookies.  And take the second jar to the hostess for the hostess gift.
