cookies {and a giveaway!}


The other day my mom and sister were making cookies thousands of miles away. It was so sad I couldn’t join them. It made me think of my mom’s peppermint candies and it made me homesick!

It’s that time of year, lots of cookies and candy that remind me of home. 🙂

and I happened to pin this Shortbread Cookie Recipe on Pinterest.: shortbread cookies3

My mom never made Shortbread Cookies, but Husbuddy loves  Shortbread… so he convinced me to make it last night.

mmm… they’re so good and buttery and soft.  and  who knew shortbread was so easy to make?! {it has a TON of butter tho}

    Well my favorite would be sugar cookies with frosting made by the kiddos who are all grown up now… sigh. We could make them when you are here, but then I would eat them too.

    My favorite cookie recipe would be my mom’s pumpkin raisin cookies she makes at Christmas. They are so yummy 🙂

    Well, I have this great recipe for sugar cookies that are super soft and light and delicious, but you know about that one. At Christmas, though, there are a couple that we ALWAYS make. There’s one called chocolate cherryettes, which are these little shortbread-like bites with minced cherries in them and chocolate glaze on top. And I always, always love making gingerbread cutout cookies. Let me know if you’re up for a bit more Christmas baking in the next couple of weeks!
