Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies from Jen's Favorite CookiesI’m a little disturbed by how far we are into December.  I mean, I’m still working on getting my decorations up and I’ve barely even begun my shopping.

Not to mention being prepared for holiday parties and lunch with friends.

This could be a problem.

In case you haven’t figured this out, I’m not one of those people who is uber-prepared and has the tree up on Thanksgiving Day, and all the shopping done by Halloween.  Not at all.  I’m more of a deal-with-one-crisis-at-a-time kind of person.

Except when there’s cookies involved.  The thing is, sometimes a girl just needs a chocolate cookie, and it can’t wait until I’ve dug out the holiday music and put the Christmas centerpiece on the table.

Luckily, this recipe is so quick and easy, you don’t have to wait.

I hope you don’t get the wrong idea from all my complaining.  The truth is, I love Christmas.  I love all the holiday cheer, and twinkle lights, and music, and of course, the baked goods.

Which is why I’m so excited to be part of Christmas Week!  Lots of bloggers are participating, and sharing some delicious holiday desserts with you all week long!  As if that weren’t enough, we’re also giving away some fun prizes!  You’ll have to check back during the week to see all the amazing recipes and giveaways.

  11. Frist… I have to say I LOVE this font that you use for comments! It makes me feel sophisticated!
    And… I love how the cherries are spilling out of that broken cookie. I’m afraid I’d make this recipe then put it away in a box and not really share with everyone. but that wouldn’t be very Christmas spirited… so I think I’ll just put a few in a box to hide and share the rest. Fabulous recipe!!!
