I don’t normally like to put lots of personal things on my blog since it’s business but I had to share these family recipes. My family the woman always bake together at Christmas time and make dozens of cookies for the family and to give away. Since I can’t spend that with my Mom’s side I thought I would share the Christmas cookie recipes.
