Happy Holidays!

Sending you all warm wishes this holiday season. May love, hope, Christmas cookies, and happiness be yours at Christmastime and always. Thank you so much for the joy you’ve brought me simply by baking and sharing my recipes.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday! I have another new recipe this week before we gear up for the January Baking Challenge. (January already!?) Don’t forget to make your butter cookies if you haven’t participated in the December Baking Challenge yet!
