I really want to be the type of person that bakes cookies and brings them to neighbors and friends. I always appreciate the gesture so much. I even have cute little tins I have bought over the years to package up the cookies. But as of yet, I still have not done this. Well, this year I made it an activity on our Advent Calendar so I have no excuse not to do it. But what kind of cookies to make???
If you read blogs and are on Pinterest then you know there are so shortage of cookie recipes out there. I could not decide on just one cookie so I have 12 here and if you wanted to, you could make one for each of the 12 days of Christmas. I got permission from some wonderful bloggers to share these cookies with you. If you would like the recipe, please click on the link.
