It is funny that even though I come from a very German family on my dad's side, gingerbread wasn't really a holiday staple. We always had sugar cookies, and crescent cookies, there was always peanut brittle and a variety of other cookies and candies. But we never really got into the molasses and spiced cookies. My husband's German family, however got a bit more into gingerbread. His uncle Doug and family make and send gingerbread men from Washington state each year. It is the highlight of his grandma's Christmas season, I think. She gets the lot of gingerbread men and picks out a couple for each of the family members. But I think Matt's dad takes the cake on gingerbread loving.

Let me tell you the story about how two paths converged to make these cookies. First, when I was searching for cookie cutters to make the cinnamon brown sugar cookies for Ro's baby shower I found a goat cookie cutter in MiMi's cutters. My father-in-law loves gingerbread cookies and he has recently become a goat farmer, so I just knew I had to make him gingerbread goats!

Super Duper Chewy Milk Chocolate M&M Cookies are bound to be one of those cookies that your family asks for year round! I mean why not? Afterall, the only thing better than chocolate is more chocolate and the only thing better than a cookies is a bigger cookie. You know I'm right. Don't even try to deny it!

Welcome back to the 64th week of Throwback Thursday! Come link up your latest and greatest posts or reach into those archives and show us some of your blasts from the past!
Hey party people and welcome back to Throwback Thursday! We are so happy that you could make it this week!
A cup of this and a cup of that is all it takes to make these light and crisp cookies and your family will be full of gratitude! It is finally here, the 12 Days of Cookies!! It feels like it has been a long time coming... probably since Ellen from Family Around the Table and I started talking about it months ago. Really, I think it's been in the works since mid-summer. So it kind of feels like it has been a long time coming, but of course life has a way of sneaking up on you so it also kind of feels like it was just a figment of our imagination a moment ago. Either way, I am really excited to be sharing some delicious cookies with you and I cannot wait to see what my friends have been baking up.
