If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that Rich and I made twelve different types of cookies and five types of candies to give away this year. What you may not know is that we keep around a third of them.

In late December/early January I package the remaining cookies in freezer bags then toss them in the freezer to be consumed throughout the year. This year, we ended up with six bags — one every other month!

I didn’t freeze the candies… but you’ve got to have some temptation to tug at one’s New Year’s resolution to lose weight.
