Christmas time is here, and in the Taepke household, that means cookies. Lots and lots of cookies. I spend countless years helping MRS. Taepke bake dozens upon dozens of cookies, washing the dishes, and of course, eating the left over batter. :-P Yum!
If you would like to particpate in Ms. T's first ever Christmas Cookie Contest (the final day of class before the holiday break), check out some of my favourite recipes below and bring some in!

Remember that oh-so-fun lesson about the US Presidential election back in early November? And we kinda giggled about the possibility of Trump being the president? There was also that tidbit about the Electoral College and how this group of people are the ones who will really elect the new President of the USA.
