Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash - Christmas Recipes


Today's all about those wonderful recipes, old and new, that we all make for Christmas. I'm pretty late getting today's Holly Bloggy post up because, well, I am in the middle of making some of those delicious treats! Growing up, my favorite cookies were Chocolate Crinkles. I still love them! I also love Brown-Eyed Susans (that's what my mom called them - peanut butter cookies with Hershey's Kisses pressed in them). They were always my mom's favorite. I call them Brown-Eyed Ashlyns now, because of my daughter. :)

Today I've been making treats for my family and those coming to the Christmas Cookie Exchange I'm hosting this Saturday evening. I can't wait! I'm making Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies (the link has the recipe).

I am also making cake pops. I've made these a few times after seeing them on Bakerella's website and everyone who tries them LOVES them! I'm going to be decorating them like reindeer... hopefully they turn out even half as cute as these.

Simply Sweet Home is hosting the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash today (thank you!) so join me in going over and seeing what yummy things other people are making!
