Every year my mom, sister and I gather in one of our kitchens for our annual holiday baking fest. We usually make several different kinds of cookies to get us through our Christmas celebrations. And this year was no exception. Well, there was something different about this year. My lil' lady bean joined us for the fun and was very excited about her job as chief sugar cookie decorator! I do believe we have a little baker in the making on our hands! I bet you have one of two of those around your house too...And just in case you do, I've rounded up some of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes for your baking pleasure!
