Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the house,
the creatures were stirring, especially my spouse.
My exams are done, the papers written with care,
in hopes that the professors will mark them quite fair.
Today marks the first day of the holiday break.
To celebrate the season, I decided to bake.
Not fruit cakes or sugar plums, they simply won't do.
I decided to whip up a batch of cookies, or two.
This recipe is one that I make each year,
it's perfect for hot chocolate and holiday cheer.
So put on your apron and get out your bowl,
make these for Santa and you won't get a lump of coal!
