Christmas Cookies 2016

I always worry that I won’t be able to get it all done… but once again it just worked out. 😉

I had a few cookie recipes that I wanted to add onto my tried and true favorites, but was only able to make two new ones: German Lebkuchen and Dulce de Leche-Hazelnut Macaroons (posts to follow). I had wanted to make the Speculaas: Dutch Spice Cookies that I had tried last year… possibly even the Haselnussmakronen: Raspberry-Hazelnut Macaroons also from last year… Well, maybe it doesn’t all work out. :/ We still have quite a few yummy cookies to enjoy!

Happy Holidays!!
