Christmas Cookies

christmas cookies

The Christmas season is well among us all. We are all out shopping until we drop, and I mean literally drop. Yesterday I finished up my shopping, and I was sweating when I got done. I gave myself three hours to finish it up. I did it. I am so proud of myself.

Now that you are pooped from shopping, I am sure you don’t want to spend hours and hours in the kitchen baking. These cookies are a quick fix for that. They wont take you long at all to whip together, and bake. They could be a great fit for your neighbor treats, caroling goodies, Christmas parties, whatever you have in mind. They are great combo of craisins, white chocolate chips, oatmeal and coconut. A pure Christmas flavor if you ask me. Hope you enjoy your holiday baking with me, and bake this recipe. Happy Holidays!!!
