12 Dates of Christmas

Cookies & PJs

On our 2nd date of Christmas we made cookies {or I attempted to}. I saw a recipe for Speculoos Buttons on Bon Appetit, and thought they looked delicious – a fancy gingerbread cookie. Plus, I wanted to use these.

Why do I always pick the cute cookie that’s a pain in the @$$? Some future tips for you: don’t ever use regular molasses when it calls for mild molasses; and room temperature butter & eggs make all the difference. Or so I would assume. My Speculoos Buttons tasted great right out of the oven, but were hard as a rock the next day. And, were BROWN, not a pretty light brown like the magazine. We made chocolate chip cookies instead.

3rd date of Christmas: shop for Christmas PJs {I’m combining these two since the cookies were such a disaster}. Thank God for a simple task! PJ sets are the way to go. Thank you, Target!
