Baking Holiday Cookies

... Orange Butter Cut-out Cookies ...
Did I have fun baking cookies today!  Starting at sunrise (no kidding, folks!) I finished at 5pm.  A lot of time on my feet, but that's okay.  Listening to Christmas music, watching our first snow fall out the floor to ceiling glass windows, drinking Starbucks coffee and baking cookies ... and ... sampling them as they came from the oven ... is a pretty perfect day (if you ask me). 
... Oatmeal Raisin & Dried Cherry Cookies ... 
... Extraordinary Chocolate Chip Cookies ... 
In the upper right are Slice-and-Bake Cranberry-Orange Shortbread Cookies and in the lower right corner are Heavenly Sugar Cookies (a new recipe by Paula Deen) 
Anyone for a big snowflake sugar cookie? 
Ready to go into the oven. 

This is a box full of cookies which will be a gift to our doctor. 
My favorite ribbon that I've used on packages this year.
