I'll be posting some holiday recipes and hope you'll have fun experimenting with them. I promise they won't be too complicated. Each year around this time I start browsing through recipe books and holiday magazines in search of different kinds of cookies to bake and share, and almost every year I end up baking the old familiar ones instead. This year is going to be different. Enjoy!
