It wouldn't be the Christmas season without making my Grandmother's yummy cookies. I've made these every single year since she passed away back in 2007. This was the first time I made them by using my KitchenAid mixer and WOW, it was so much easier and cleaner! It was also the first time making them in my new kitchen!
This is the original post to the Jelly Button recipe that I shared 2 years ago.... CLICK HERE! Ella was sleeping when I made a big batch the other night but next year that little lady will be my helper! This is one of my most favorite Christmas traditions and hopefully it will be hers too!
Now that I'm in baking mode I've found a bunch of recipes that I'd love to make, but no one to make them for. Hubs and I could only eat so many cookies (honestly I hardly eat any...not really one for baked goods strangely)! Perhaps I could make some to bring to New York, I'm just trying to minimize the amount of stuff we need to pack. These candy cane cookies are so cute though, surely I can find a spot for them in our suitcase! This is a Laura Vitale recipe, the video make them look SO easy! If I make them I'll let you all know. What's your favorite Christmas cookie recipe?!
