chocolate gooey butter cookies

I have a new recipe to add to my all time favorites. I've made chocolate crackle cookies before but this one takes top prize. Seriously, these cookies are sooo yummy!!! 

I was searching Food Network's 12 Days of Cookies recipes & found this one. I've already bought 2 more boxes of cake mix because the batch I made last night...yeah, that's nearly gone! 

These puppy dogs were patiently waiting to see if I'd drop any cookies :) 
You can check out the recipe here.

I was glad to see from my last post that some of you share the same feelings about the holidays as I do. I ended up canceling my cookie swap (more cookies for me! hehe) We're headed out tonight with my friend Kellie & her family for some holiday fun & hopefully a horse-drawn carriage ride :)

We managed to get most of the outside lights up today which makes me sooo happy. The wreaths won't be up (except for the front door) but I had to realize my limits this year. Normally I get those up the week before Thanksgiving. This is the first year I didn't have any lights on my house by Dec 1st. And mind you, I've spent 2 Decembers in my 3rd trimester so it can be done! I've noticed that it's actually easier to be near the end of a pregnancy during the holidays than in the beginning. Weird!

Anyhoo, here's a few fun pics from this afternoon. 
 One very happy pup :)
 
Tomorrow I'm hoping to finish up outside & then get cracking on my December Daily before I get too far behind. I also have a bunch of treat bags & teacher gifts to get ready. The kids only have 4 more days of school left before winter break!!

This cookie recipe looks really good. I'm going to have to check out the 12 days of cookie recipes.

We have five more days of school here. I can't wait for the break!
