Christmas Adam Cookie Round-Up 2011

Today is a very special day at my house.  It's Christmas Adam.  (The day before Christmas Eve.)  It's a day of baking all kinds of goodies to share with our family and friends, and of course, a couple of cookies for Santa Claus.

Because Christmas cookies are meant to be shared, I thought I'd share some of my favorite cookie recipes from some very good friends of mine.  (I'll be baking a few of these myself today.) 

Happy baking and Merry Christmas Adam to all!

    Tomo nota para mi próxima edición de galletas para regalar.. muy buenas recetas

  2. Well, I am off to the kitchen soon to bake up some lovely sugaryness.  Is that a word?  It is today!  I'm making standard cookies that I love and will share with others.  On the menu, brownies, chocolate chip cookies and iced soft sugar cookies.  You can't go wrong with any of those.  And, just for fun, I think some oh so yummy coffee cake is on the menu, too! 

    Here is a big virtual MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!  Just in case our virtual paths don't cross again before then!

  3. These look amazing. I think many of them could easily be made without sugar, replacing an ingredient here or there. Will give it a try, they really look delish.
