Years ago, I made batches of Oreo truffles to accompany frosted sugar cookies on Christmas goodie trays. The truffles were simple to make and required much less time than my sugar cookie recipe. 

For example, I once made the mistake of starting my sugar cookies adventure in the late afternoon thinking it would be a great evening project while watching Christmas movies. Well 6 hours later I was exhausted and was left with a disaster of a kitchen and more sugar cookies than I knew what to do with.

Naturally, I ate as many as I could stomach because I deserved it. 😉

You see, after hours of slaving away mixing the batter, rolling out the dough, deciding which of my 30 cookies cutters to use each time, baking the cookies, allowing them to cool, and then frosting and decorating all.of.them I justified eating a bazillion of those mouthwatering reindeer, snowmen, and angels.
