Tis the season for baking – and that means baking up your favourite holiday cookies!
Baking cookies always brings back happy memories of times with my mom, when I was a kid. She’d make sugar cookies or shortbread in various shapes and I would decorate the heck out of them with sprinkles, icing sugar and sticky frosting. I would lick my fingers, make a mess and gobble them up while my mom patiently rolled more dough ready for the next batch. Ah! What happy memories.
To get into the holiday spirit, for you my friends, I am sharing some quick and easy holiday cookies to make this year. These are perfect for your family get togethers, a cookie exchange or to share with your co-workers and friends.
Let’s get the flour out, candy cane aprons on and get started 🙂
