      Thanks, SavorySimple! These cookies are part of a collection of recipes for the Christmas cookies my mom bakes as part of her annual Christmas tradition. Each year, she bakes over a thousand cookies! Most of the cookies are shipped out in cookie tins to various friends and family across the country as a tasty Christmas gift! I look forward to trying out one of the recipes from your blog. Enjoy your office Christmas party!
