Why does cookie dough have to taste so good?

It's 7:45 PM Eastern time on the Eve of Christmas Eve and I've decided to write my first blog. My almost 3 year old daughter and 15 month old son are watching "The Original Christmas Classic!" "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!" told & sung by Fred Astaire. I made my homemade macaroni & cheese tonight (Madelyn asked for it) while starting to make my cookies that I need for tomorrow.

This is my 1st time making chocolate chip cookies by myself & they came out quite delicious. I just took the last ones out of the oven & now I have to start Oatmeal Raisin. I'll probably double the recipe which should be close to 100 cookies and then I will start my Mom's recipe for Peanut Butter Blossoms (I make every Christmas). This is my first year making the other two kinds.

As you can see I have my hands full until my fiance gets home from work so I'm going to put the kids to bed and get to baking, maybe he'll even help me when he gets home, if I'm lucky :)
