Before we know it, we will all start our Christmas baking! Yes I said the “C” word. You know it’s coming. You know that it will be here sooner than you think. So why not figure out what you are going to be baking. You know that you always say that you’re going to get ahead of the game, but it will be December 24th and you’ll be freaking out because you haven’t baked anything . Or you say that you don’t have room in your freezer…
Then these cookies are perfect for you. They don’t need to be frozen. You can also make a few batches with different add ins, to make many different flavours. You can make them today be have all your baking done, way ahead of schedule!!
Either way, enjoy them and all that the holidays have to go with it!
