Beginning today, I will be posting my favorite Christmas Cookie recipes for 12 Days. And on December 13th, I will host a Blog Carnival for all of you to share your recipes.
In our family, we have several Holiday traditions, and like most families, Cookies are toward the top of the list. However, the Cookies that I bake are not fancy, but tried and true family recipes.
Today, I thought I would start the series with a recipe that my Mother-In-Law baked for many, many years. And according to my husband, it just wasn’t Christmas without them.
