Sweet (Treats) Christmas Traditions

There are some traditions that should never be broken come 'h--- or highwater,' as they say. And even though my schedule is kinda crazy, I refuse to give up the tradition of baking cookies with my kids. I want them to always remember our times together covered in flour and munching on the best Christmas cookie recipe I found from Alton Brown, years ago.

We also make Peanut Butter Blossoms (a Midwest tradition) and Orange Sable cookies (from Martha Stewart) which are very much like shortbread cookies (the adults love them too!)

But why stop there, last year I made these cuties for school.

What are you baking for the holidays? Got a cookie recipe to share?


  1. Peanut butter blossoms are my all-time favorite anytime treat!

  2. Wow, you're on the ball! I have started a baking list, but I haven't committed to a final draft yet - let alone begun baking anything. Your goodies all turned out really, really cute.

  3. Ooooooo those all look so very yummy!

  4. I have got to get on the ball with my cookie baking this year!

  5. Those looks soooo good! I have started making batches of dough and freezing them for baking next week! Merry Christmas!

  6. After your post, i´m hungry. Kisses and God bless you.
