The Twelve Days of Cookies

Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit…or should I say Santa, Santa, Santa? Happy December! Are you ready to start your holiday baking yet, or would you rather spend time decorating the tree, curled up with a good Hallmark movie, or drinking glass after glass of rum-laced egg nog? If you’re ready to brave the kitchen and whip up batch after batch of Christmas cookies, then have I got some recipes for you. Twelve to be exact. There’s sure to be one that tempts Santa into leaving you that present that until now you’ve only been dreaming of. I myself am hoping for a vintage VW Bug, but that’s just me. The sky’s the limit. Wish big, eat cookies, and don’t forget to wash them down with tons of egg nog.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
