I am right in the thick of Christmas baking and loving the smells wafting out of the kitchen now. There is definitely a Christmasy feeling I get when the house smells like vanilla and sugar. Hubby man came home last night and scratched his head for a minute because he saw I had made enchiladas for dinner, yet the house smelled like cookies. Some of our friends do cookie exchanges and we always get such a great variety of favorites and creative new recipes. These Christmas cookies are perfect for sharing and almost to beautiful to eat!
