We baked up a frenzy today and yesterday...the plan was 7 different kinds of cookies, which is a Swedish Christmas tradition (although none of our cookies were traditional Swedish ones) but one cookie sort didn't get baked, though the dough is chilling in the fridge...we just ran out of time, after spending the morning cleaning, the afternoon baking and the evening decorating the trees. After dinner Karin and Anders made knäck (toffee) which is a Swedish Christmas candy, but without nuts because Karin doesn't like them.

Plate o' cookies: (clockwise from lower left corner) Rice Krispie Holly Bars, Almond Paste Sandwich Cookies, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars, Reindeer Poop (aka Caramel-filled Chocolate Cookies), PB&Choc Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, Knäck, Creme-Filled Sandwich Cookies
