In the kitchen with the boys Holiday edition :)

We have been baking up a storm and making treats here at Casa Tickled Pink :)  I think we have made about 200 Oreo Bonbons and I have made about 10 dozen cookies.  My thumb hurts from all the icing of cookies!  Perhaps I need to change my icing bag grip... ;)

our supplies for the bonbons.  These a just so yummy!  We give these as teacher gifts along with some cookies.  We actually make them for all the boys past teachers as well.  I honestly start getting requests in October!  It's a good thing the boys have had the same teachers for each grade, or I could be making double what I am already ;)
 C rolling the Oreo mix in melted chocolate.  Mmmmm.
 J doing the oh so serious job of adding sprinkles :)
Some of the finished product:
 The cookies I made for C's class party that was today.  He chose the snowflakes in hopes that it would encourage snow.  Doesn't look like it will happen before Christmas though.

 I did these ornament cookies for a friend who is having a family Christmas party on Sunday.  Wasn't sure for awhile there that I was going to be able to get these done, but I finished them this evening.  And was still able to get dinner on the table!  
Are you doing a lot of baking this season??  What are your traditional Christmas cookies?  I have gingerbread dough in the fridge that will be turned into cookies tomorrow, and then I hope to decorate with the boys after school. :)

Love your iced cookies- I really want to try some, but I can't imagine they will look as beautiful as the cookies you made. My friend, Amber (the Dowdy's Doings) and I attempted cake balls a few weeks ago. Lot of fun, but also a lot of work. We were absolutely sick of cake balls once we finished for the day.
