Dough a deer, a female deer... No, wait. Wrong song.

I was the dough lady today.  I actually spent the better part of the day preparing the cookie doughs that I needed to bake my cookies.  To do it all in one fell swoop seemed reasonable.  At least then, I only trash the kitchen with flour and whatnot once.

The cookies will be baked tomorrow. 

I have the following prepared and chilling:
Ginger (for Ginger Kisses)-  It needs to sit overnight anyhow.
Red Hot Sugar Cookies-  I'm thinking that they might benefit from some overnight rest.  The cinnamon flavor will settle in better.
Crunchy Peanut Butter
Chocolate Chip
Double Chocolate Chocolate Chip-  I've learned to steer clear of flying cocoa powder.  One year, I ended up inhaling a huge cloud and ended up ill.  I swear that the upper respiratory infection I got (I started coughing right then and didn't stop for 6 weeks) was an inhalation cause.  I was so sick.  Antibiotics and a lot of Mucinex were involved. 
Butter Crisp-  Very easy cookies that involve Rice Krispies and a box of cake mix.
Thumbprint AKA Fingerprints-  K- has some ideas about how best to place the indentations into these.

I have a couple of batches of brownies to make and a pan of Almost Candy Bars.  Those change flavor by the year, so I'll be winging it on that.  As long as I have the cake mix crust and sweetened condensed milk top, all the rest is up to whatever I have. 

I will be caffeine driven.  It has to happen tomorrow.  My Susie Homemaker apron will be on and my trusty side kick will be at my side. 

Have a great weekend!
