I start collecting my ingredients for cookie baking at least a month or more in advance…

Cake Mixes (make great cookies)…

Cookie mixes…

Sprinkles (sometimes on clearance after different seasons)

Nuts…

Chocolate chips and other flavors… (peanut butter)

Parchment Paper…

Enough cookie sheets to keep the assembly line moving…

White and Chocolate Almond Bark…

Cinnamon… sugar… candy…

Butter / Margarine…

Eggs…

Flour…

 

What items I find on sale and stash will determine what type of cookies I make for the Christmas Holidays…k7291611

I mail several (LOTS)… out-of-town…

and then give as gifts…
