Cookie Swap: Jam Thumbprint Cookies

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.

Cookie Swap: Coconut Macaroons

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.
