The Christmas holidays usually means lots of Christmas cookies. These cookies are a little out of the ordinary and are very, very delicious. They are good year round and are always a big hit. If you make these cookies, get ready to share the recipe. They are that good! That’s how I got this recipe. Enjoy! Tom~
