    Creative Christmas Cookie Roundup

    Baking beautiful and delicious cookies during the holiday season is a family tradition in my home. When I moved into my own house with my husband, I brought all of my favorite recipes that I borrowed from my mom with me. However, now with the advent of Pinterest, I am able to find even more Christmas cookie recipes to try. Here are my top favorite creative Christmas cookies that I discovered through Pinterest.

    Easy Poinsettia Platter

    Poinsettias remind me of my grandmother because she loved the beautiful red holiday flower. Check out this beautiful and easy poinsettia platter from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.
