Christmas cookies

It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas … and taste like it too! The winter bacchanalia that consists of me stuffing myself full of cookies to take my mind off the fact that I can’t stuff myself with wine right now has begun. And so, I spent some time this weekend making delicious Christmas cookies.


With all of my down time right now, I’m taking on little projects, like writing out all my favourite recipes in a pleasing fashion and organizing them in this pretty little recipe box I didn’t need that I bought at Chapters. Huzzah for pretty little things!

I decided to make my two favourite Christmas cookies from when I was growing up. These have been in the family so long, I have no clue where they came from. Both are absolutely atrocious for you, with no redeeming qualities other than absolute deliciousness. Enjoy!
