Christmas Cookies

When winter first rears it's ugly head each year, people tend to gain a little weight. It's science people, I don't just make this stuff up. When it's cold outside, people tend to be less active. Not only that, but with the holiday season, comes holiday goodies.

It all starts with Halloween. No matter how hard you try, you will inevitably end up eating more candy than you'd like. There's really no use in trying to avoid it, it’s the way of the world. Before you can even recover from Halloween, you've got Thanksgiving (a holiday where you are encouraged to gorge yourself on food for an entire day) and following Thanksgiving of course, is Christmas!

Christmas is a little different though. At no point are you forced to eat a giant meal or campaign door to door for candy. You are, however, constantly presented with holiday treats: egg nog, candy canes, those red and green M&M’s, and of course, Christmas cookies!

Christmas cookies are EVERYWHERE! You see them behind the glass at Starbucks, there are plates kicking around the office, and if your grandmother doesn’t make at least one pan of cookies, then she isn’t doing her job. ;)

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I love Christmas cookies. How could you not? They’re chalked full of sugary goodness and they’re shaped like my favorite Christmas gifts! What am I getting at? A simple request: Break out your cookie sheets and cutters and make a batch for your favorite holiday bloggers!

What are your favorite Holiday treats?
