This is the fifth of twelve posts on my Family Heritage Christmas cookies. Every Monday from now until Christmas I will share my full collection of Christmas cookie recipes with you. My Christmas cookie collection consists of twelve different kinds of cookies. Every year I bake over 500 cookies and give them to our family and friends.
I have already posted about my Almond Crescents, no cook S’mores, Almond cups and Coconut Macaroons.
