The annual NEO Christmas Cookie swap is back! Lamia and I are so excited because it’s an excuse to bake. And the boy is happy because he willingly plays the part of the taste-tester. I’m starting this year’s swamp with a cookie my mother has been making for a long as I can remember.
Last year I worked up a batch of Gingerbread cookies to test my patience, and my ability to work royal icing. Truth, I failed on attempts 1-5.
I’m absolutely ok with the fact that I’ve decided to make cookies at the beginning of each week in the month of December. Coincidentally so is my husband, his coworkers, and now my coworkers.
While I’m not participating in any actual cookie swaps (not entirely sure what a cookie swap is), I am baking, and consuming a lot of cookies this Christmas season. Thankfully, the hubs likes to take them to his office to share so we aren’t eating ALL of the cookies. This recipe is so easy and the ingredients are standard in every kitchen, not just a baker’s pantry.
