Pistachio Thumbprint Cookies - pistachio cookies with vanilla filling and a chocolate drizzle! The perfect Christmas cookie!

It’s Christmas cookie season!

How excited are you?!

And how was Thanksgiving?!

My kids were out of town and since I very rarely get a night without kids and I’m also always whining about the lack of poke in our tiny city, BF drove us 45 minutes Wednesday night so we could have a Thanksgiving sushi burrito and poke bowl. He had to work real Thanksgiving and I was happy not to cook a single thing this year.

And then I never left the house the rest of the weekend except to pick my kids up yesterday.

It was perfect.

Kitchen Sink Oatmeal Cookies – oatmeal cookies filled with everything but the kitchen sink! Chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, walnuts, raisins, and coconut!

When we moved I realized I had a lot of mostly empty bags of chocolate chips.

A lot.

Same goes for pecans, shredded coconut, almond meal, bottles of vanilla, all the stuff I always think I’m out of when I’m out the store and apparently am never actually out of it.

Plus, 15 packages of almond bark even though I only use almond bark once a year for crockpot candy…? I don’t know, guys.

I guess everyone I know is getting crockpot candy for Christmas next year.

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! 

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! I make these over and over!

I’m just not a cookie person.

I would choose cake, a slice of pie, a handful of gummy bears, pretty much any other sweet over a cookie.

The exception to that rule is the one or 2 times a year when the only thing I can think about is grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies.

You know the ones, right?

They’re super soft and somehow every grocery store in the country makes them exactly the same way?

Yeah, those.

When I get a random craving for one of them, nothing fixes it but getting those cookies.

I can remember leaving my house in a snowstorm in Colorado because I needed these cookies to survive the day.

Fritos and grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies are the only things that I was ever willing to leave my house for during a snowstorm.

Y’all remember those days? When I was too scared to drive in the snow so we would walk to school every day? Granted, it was a short walk but still. I was terrified to drive in the snow for the first several years we were there.

Anyway.

Gluten Free Iced Orange Cookies - the perfect gluten free holiday cookie recipe! Tender cookies with orange zest and topped with a delicious sweet orange glaze.

We had parent teacher conferences last month and during one of them my blog came up and we started talking about how I do a lot of paleo stuff and the teacher mentioned that she and her husband are gluten free so when her students bring in homemade treats for her, she typically has to pass them on to other teachers.

And I don’t know if I’ve told you guys but I love all my kids’ teachers this year. I love them.

So obviously gluten free treats needed to be made for her.
