There are many ways to share merry Christmas wishes with your friends and family. And since Christmas cards seem to be going the way of the dodo, why not spread your holiday cheer with something that will never go out of style? That’s right, Christmas cookies. Christmas cookies have always been a tradition in my family and this year I was so glad to get my daughter in on the act.
I’m not the only one who’s been baking away–everyone on The Family Kitchen is in full holiday mode. Here are some of our best and brightest holiday cookie recipes:
