Last year, we made it through twelve days of Christmas Cookies, a different cookie recipe every single day from December 1-12. It was a great success and hopefully you had a lot more cookies to add your holiday baking arsenal! We did it again in 2020, and it’s so much fun we will keep doing it each year!
If you would like to have all the Christmas cookies from 2019 AND 2020 recipes in two handy books plus bonus baking tips and two bonus recipes you won’t find on this blog, click here.
