Christmas Treats

hot cocoa and cookiesI love this time of the year, I always have. I bake way to much, but luckily we share all the goodies.

Earlier this week we made sugar cookies so my daughter could take treats to her friends at school. Of course we all enjoyed some hot chocolate and a few cookies before packing them up nice for others.

This is my favorite recipe for sugar cookies. One of my closest friends passed it along to me and we make these for any occasion. They are soft, chewy and so delicious. Hope you and yours have fun baking a batch.
