Life is a Cookie

Snowballs (White Chocolate and Chocolate) and Two Layer Pecan Caramel Bars
After Day 1 of Christmas cookie baking in the Jarrell household, it is Jessica 1, Cookies 0.  Haha. I decided this year for Christmas that I wanted to give Jerame's family homemade cookies. I have never attempted Christmas cookies before, seeing as how every year prior to this one I have been working 60 hour weeks around the holidays and barely even had time to BUY people presents. I have picked out 6 different cookies to make and decided I would make 2 a day for 3 days, starting yesterday which was Tuesday. Friday the cookies begin getting delivered. Day 1 was Snowballs and Pecan Bars. It was a long day, I finally finished up at 6:45 pm. It took so long because there were 7 batches of the Snowballs! The hubby tasted tested both cookies when he got home and he gave a big thumbs up to both, although he went crazy over the Pecan Bars. I expected that. Here are the recipes for  both: White Chocolate Snowballs and Two-Layer Caramel-Pecan Bars. Up today is Salted Caramel Brownies and Peppermint Pinwheels!
