It's cookie time!!!

I realized tonight that we have officially entered the hot phase before Christmas with social events lining up, presents are arriving and need to be wrapped, and cookies can be baked!

I posted this cookie recipe before, but figured I would again.  These are my favorite to make, the roasted walnuts really give it the extra flavor.

But I think before I make those this season, I will be making these Vanilla Kipferl. 
Growing up in Germany, we would always go and visit my grandmother and her mother for Christmas. Four generations of females with no males in sight as husbands and fathers had all passed on by then.
Anyway, when we got there, they would already have several types of Christmas cookies all made, including these. Very easy to make, check out the link!

Happy Baking!
