Happy Eve of Christmas Eve. In my opinion this is a great holiday in itself, especially since it falls on the weekend this year. Happy present wrapping! I hope you enjoy the Daily Dose brought to you by the Laramie Area Chamber of Commerce.

  • Make your very own personalized wrapping paper, and add a little extra heartfelt meaning to your gifts. Find all the supplies you need at Source Office Products located at 401 Fremont St. and the Scraptree LLC located at 1305 S. 3rd St.
  •  Begin preparing for your Christmas dinner, and make sure you have all of the cooking tools you need. If you don’t head down to the Copper Kettle, and get what you need.
  • Holiday gift Idea of the day: Qdoba, Subway, and Jimmy Johns gift cards make great stocking stuffers!
  • Holiday cookie idea of the day: Lemon Cool-Whip Crinkle Cookies, Source: Allrecipes. Find these ingredients at Albertsons!
  • Side note: This dough is VERY sticky and hard to work with. Instead of using my hands to roll the cookie balls, I would scoop the dough using a spoon and plop it into a bowl of powdered sugar. From there I would use to spoon to roll it around in the sugar until it was totally coated, and then use my hands to make it a ball.
  • Ingredients
    • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
    • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration
    • Instructions
      • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheets.
      • Beat together the whipped topping and eggs together. Add the lemon cake mix and continue to mix. Dough will be sticky.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
      • Drop by teaspoonfuls into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar and roll to coat. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Bake  for 9-11 minutes.  Cool on racks.
