It just isn't Christmas without cookies...

One of my favorite parts of Christmas has always been making beautiful homemade cookies to share with family and friends. I am particularly fond of this "old" classic and I hope you will try them this year.

All ready to pop into the oven


My sweet little helper, Sophia, who was the official jam tester as well.



Quality control specialist at work. Greyson is evaluating our team efforts :)

Now where did I put the milk or perhaps the champagne...


Have a wonderful day filled with yummies and as Buddy says (from the movie Elf)


"I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands"

PS...don't forget to visit Jessi's blog so you can see a list of all the Cookie Exchange players and visit their blogs as well. Have fun and don't eat too much along the way :)

Oh, yes, Catherine, I did so enjoy meeting and being with you at Silver Bella. SB is my favorite way (even better than cookies)to start the Christmas season. Have a wonderful holiday.

HI Catherine,
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
My cookie part is real, so there will be calories involved!
I love the movie Elf!
