8 Christmas Exchange Cookies

Allcookies1

Cookie overload below….

This week we made and exchanged cookies! Angie has some family favorite recipes she makes each year and I did some digging for a few family recipes too. We made a mess of her kitchen, tasted lots of batter and let our little ones crawl around in the chaos. It was a fun morning! Baking, talking about life and starting a new little tradition together adds to the sweetness of the holiday season. 

Below are the 8 different recipes we made. 

We split the cookies and are getting full off of them this week!
