12 Days of Cookies - 20135:30 AM
I know that I say I love Autumn, and I do, but Christmas (and therefore, Winter) is my absolute favorite. I seriously can't get enough of it. Fun fact: if it were possible, my dream house would be located in a town trapped in Christmastime. My first year in Montana, there was frost on the ground in August, and since then it's been somewhat of a tradition for me to start listening to Christmas music in August (I gradually work it into my repertoire, so by December, that's all I'm listening to). Crazy? Maybe, but oh well. :)
Anyway, part of the fun this season includes baking! A couple years ago I did a little 12 Days of Cookies series. I had a lot of fun with it, so I decided to do it again!
This year I have a mix of old favorites and some new ones to add to your Christmas cookie list. Check back every day for a new recipe!
