Hey y’all!  Guess what??  It’s #ChristmasCookies week!!  Yup.  You heard me right!  It’s a week worth of Christmas cookies from 34 bloggers.  Be prepared to pin a lot, drool a lot, and beef up your grocery shopping list because there are cookies you won’t be able to wait to make.

Now, I have to admit.  I had a completely different post written for this recipe.  So, after sleeping on it, I thought I better not post that.  It just doesn’t quite sound right for the event.  Maybe I’ll post it at a later time.  We’ll see how I feel about it.

This post should be about celebrating the start of the holiday baking season!!  I’m particularly excited about it!  Aren’t you?  I love baking cookies and taking them into the office.  It’s nice to hear how people enjoy what I’ve shared with them.

Some of these people don’t even know I’m a kitchen hoor or have a food blog.  Which is fine!  Not everyone at work needs to know that.  Because sometimes I vent about them on my blog.  Of course, they’d have to read the context of the post to know who I was talking about.  I change the names to protect the innocent…and even the not so innocent.

When I was growing up, and could barely see over the counter, I remember being the kitchen helping with the holiday baking.  First, I remember stirring in the chocolate chips, then dropping the dough onto the baking sheet, and finally LOTS of quality control checks.  I didn’t want them to be sub-par cookies!

Every year we’d make chocolate chip cookies.  I’d request oatmeal raisin or peanut butter.  Probably more peanut butter than oatmeal raisin, I’m sure.  You’re talking to a total PB hoor here.

And can I just give a HUGE shout out to Mom!  Even from Maui she brought me a jar of my absolute favorite peanut butter.  You can’t get it in the states so she had to work her magic to get me a jar.  And bring it in her luggage when they came for Thanksgiving.

So, she knows how important good peanut butter is to me.  Of course, this isn’t the type of peanut butter I’m going to be making cookies with.  At least not yet.  This is the peanut butter that you spread on toast, have with PB&J, and have with PB&B.  That last is my ultimate favorite.

It seems like a lot.  They sound like a lot of cookie packed into one.  And I was concerned that it wouldn’t work out the way I wanted.  However, they came out exactly how I wanted.  There’s just enough of the peanut butter flavor, plenty of chocolate chips, and hearty oatmeal and raisins.  Similarly, the cinnamon truly does work with all the ingredients and ties the cookie together.

Since I used golden raisins, my favorite kind, they don’t stand out as much.  However, they do stand out enough that people know it’s not a chocolate chip.  If you wanted to trick people, you could use regular raisins and they might think they’re chocolate chips.

I personally think that regular raisins are hard and don’t have great raisin flavor.  In that case, I guess you could call me a raisin hoor, too.  Consequently, you will never find regular raisins in my pantry.  There’s only golden raisins and currents.  Currents because I make a steamed pudding that’s a family recipe.  I sort of shared that.  No, I did share that in its regular form and in cupcake form.  I was so proud of the cupcakes.

I’ll be sharing a couple of family favorite recipes this week and the stories behind them.  At least the stories I have behind them.  I don’t share stories like this often.  But I think it helps y’all to know I’m a person with feelings and memories.  Memories that obviously drive what I cook and bake.  And, not to mention, memories that mold and shape who I am today.  #noregrets

I think this is a much better post than the one I had written.  It makes more sense for this time of year.  This post also highlights the cookie and the thought process behind it.  I’m glad I took the time on the train this morning to rewrite this post.

I will, however, maintain the huge shout out to my blogging friend Ellen!  I wish we lived closer.  She’s an amazing women with an amazing blog.  And she has an amazing family.  Her kids are AWESOME!  I’ve met them.  In person.  SO FUNNY!  Meeting her family sort of reminded me of when I was their age and how similar our family was to theirs.
