With Thanksgiving just a week away, it's not too soon to start thinking
about Christmas cookies. Planning the cookie list is part of the fun.
I love to make favorite recipes from my Mom and from my friends.
Every cookie brings back a treasured memory.
The tarts above are not technically cookies, but they start with a
refrigerated cookie dough and baked in a muffin tin, then filled with
vanilla pudding and topped with raspberries and powdered sugar.
I made these for the first time last year and took them over to share
with a friend. I will have to dig out the recipe and share it with you.
I have baked these candy cane cookies for as long as I can remember.
It's a simple butter cookie with peppermint flavoring added to the dough.
The dough is then divided and one batch is mixed with red food coloring.
It's my signature cookie.
I always bake some gingerbread cookies too.
Thumbprints filled with raspberry jam are another one of
my favorites. This recipe comes from an old Betty Crocker
The week after Thanksgiving, I will begin to share cookie recipes
with you. I always bake plates of cookies to share with our neighbors,
so you will be included in the process. Until then, be sure to stop by
the Holiday Blog Hop for more recipes from our friends.
Today's participants are:
And a very big thank you to Carol at Blue Sky Kitchen for
organizing this recipe blog hop!
