Hello, friends! Christmas is only a few days away – finally!!! Actually, I kind of feel like it totally snuck up on us this year and we’ve had such an easy early winter here in Petoskey! Just this last week we finally got hit with snow but I keep hearing it’s going to warm up again in the 40’s this coming week and I’m totally OK with that! I think the kids will be bummed but that gave me good reason to kick them outside this morning and run off some energy. We have a small dirt hill on the side of our property and even though we really only have a few inches of snow, they had a fantastic time sledding for a good 45 minutes.
I used the alone time and took the opportunity to make some last minute Christmas goodies including these yummy, tasty, Christmas Kiss Cookies. Not only are they really rich and flavorful but they are also super easy. If you need a last minute Christmas cookie for a friend, neighbor, co-workers or just a treat to have out for the family these are a great go-too. From start to finish it takes about 1 hour and that includes baking time, so you won’t be slaving away in the kitchen all day.
