Xmas cookies. Nine months of training down the tubes in nine mins.

What can I say? I'm weak.

My wife's staff cookie exchange was today and there is so much insulin coursing through my veins right now I think I'm going to have to take a foam roller to my pancreas to keep it from cramping.

And here I thought my improved health would insulate me from these sorts of temptations, but I guess some habits die slower than molasses in January.

Hmmmm... molasses cookies....

So what's your guiltiest food pleasure this time of year?

+1 or the ever present always ready, nestle chocolate chips straight from the bag

Something must be wrong with your training or with your cookies. I have been main lining the chocolate chips for the last 6 months guilt free.

If you combine peanut butter and chocolate in any sort of dessert form (cookies, bars, fudge, etc.), it's best to keep your fingers and hands away from the plate while I'm attacking it. There's a distinct possibility they will accidentally get eaten.

Oreos.

Chocolate in any form (at ate most of mu kids' Halloween candy ... oh, the rapture of Snickers and Dark Chocolate).

Peanut Butter (but this is a staple food for me even during training season.)

Desserts - I seldom eat dessert except for the last few weeks of course.

The skin off roasted chicken or turkey - crispy and heavenly...

tofurky? we did buy these otter pops for my older daughter, and i can't resist at least one a night. i justify it because they're something like 20 calories. i know, i'm pretty boring.

Cookies, any kind of

Cookies, any kind of cookies. I come by it honestly, we called my dad the "Cookie Monster" all the years of my childhood. That man can not keep his hands out of a cookie jar. And he's still healthy as a horse and fit as a fiddle at 75, so I am hopeful that cookies will not be my demise.

My aunt's homemade buckeyes

My aunt's homemade buckeyes every year at Christmas. If you aren't from Ohio State country, you wouldn't understand. The chocolate/peanut butter balls that you can buy elsewhere just don't hold a candle to the real deal.

Peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar. Rolled and dipped in melted baking chocolate & chocolate chips.

Divine. ok, now must call my aunt and ask her to mail me some since our extended family no longer gathers for Christmas. (I can blame it on pregnancy cravings, right!?!?)

Me too. Call me Mr. Reese's Cups. I love the "DUMP" bars though. They taste better than they sound. Mostly PB and Chocolate chips.

My fav. is egg nog in my coffee instead of milk 'n sugar. They only sell egg nog seasonally in my province, Dec 1st for six weeks, that's it.
I highly reccommend it.

oh, and mince tarts, esp. with hot custard.

I'm not from Ohio, but close enough to have the recipe! I make 'em every holiday and they go like hotcakes.

Then I start baking everything from my mom's candy cane recipe to my husband's Swiss "Brunsli," and it's all downhill from there. Of course when it's cold enough, we make authentic Swiss fondue. Oh how I wish it would get cold in Florida...
