I start my Christmas off by baking a different kind of cookies each week for the 5-6 weeks prior to Christmas. My mom gives me a list of her selections (she tends to like spicy and simple cookies), I add in a few of my favorites (I like anything with chocolate or sprinkles) and I always try something new as well.
This weekend I started off with shortbread. I made two versions - traditional (mom's favorite) and peppermint (my favourite). Mmmmm.
