Christmas Cookies 2013


I love giving out – and baking- Christmas cookies. We share them with family, friends, neighbors, teachers, and co-workers. The whole family is involved in the distribution process! πŸ™‚

I wish that I had time to bake more cookies!! I try to add one new cookie each year- this year my daughter chose gingerbread boys and girls. She loved them. πŸ™‚ The only constants are Raspberry Meringue Kisses and Haystacks which are a family tradition dating back to my grandmother. They are my kids’ favorites!

Raspberry Meringue Kisses (2x recipe)

HaystacksΒ (2x recipe)

Gingerbread with Royal Icing (1x recipe)

Pecan Shortbread (3x recipe)
