Every year around the holidays, it’s tradition for my grandma, my mother and I to bake an excessive amount of Christmas cookies! But seriously, no normal person could possibly consume the amount of cookies we shell out. But it’s tradition so we do it anyway!

So I’ve decided to post a Christmas cookie recipe everyday leading up to Christmas! Happy baking!
