Cookie Parties are the best kinds of parties to have.

My great friend, Karin, invited us over yesterday for a cookie party.  She asked us to bring over the ingredients and/or dough for our favorite Christmas cookies.  I decided to try a new recipe–candy cane twists.  I found the recipe in my family fun magazine.  They were easy to make and very festive!

We baked lots of Christmas cookies and ate snacks.  When they got tired of icing cookies, they decorated wooden ornaments to give to each other.  And this fabulous midwestern mommy living the sunny life in SoCal even had sloppy joe’s cookin’ in the crock pot to feed us dinner.  But I have to say, best part of the afternoon were wine spritzers for the mommies!  It was a lovely way to spend quality holiday time with friends and I can’t wait to make this a new holiday tradition.
