The last few weeks have been a crazy combination of Christmas bazaars, Holiday Markets, pre-Christmas orders for German cinnamon roasted almonds and a big holiday. My daughter flew out from Chicago to help me through it and now the holiday is past, she has returned home and the dust is starting to settle. My little tree went up yesterday and I’m ready to organize my holiday baking. We are creatures of habit and I have made the same list of Christmas cookies forever, but this year I want to try some new ones in the huge stack that has accumulated on my desk. First on the list is homemade marshmallows dipped in homemade caramel sauce. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I’ll post it in the next few days. In the meantime I want to share a few of my family’s favorite Christmas cookie recipes starting with these little Christmas Tree Shortbread Cookies. These are all tried and true and we love them. Happy Baking!
