Tis’ the Christmas season. If you need a new recipe to add to your list of Christmas cookie tradition then delight yourself in these easy Christmas cookie recipes your whole family will love!
Melt in your mouth cookies with cream cheese, powdered sugar, sprinkles, peanut butter, peppermint and chocolate chips are all things that scream Christmas cookies to me!
Hot cocoa is a nightly affair while we curl up with our Christmas books and share in what this season is all about. So many good times and time spent celebrating Christmas together. Nothing says family like Christmas cookies.
Every year we spend some time dabbling in the kitchen coming up with something festive to enjoy with our favorite Christmas stories and the cocoa in many varieties. My kids love these times. Baking and learning. Decorating and laughing over some of the silliest things. This is what makes my world go round. Plus it is a tradition!
