Every year, at my parents house, we make Christmas cookies. Actually, my dad is the one who leads the way – he does all the Christmas baking! This year, I decided to try this simple recipe. I meant to post this last night, but I will admit that I messed up the oh so simple dough – I used whole wheat flour in an attempt to be healthier and the dough was like a brick, and tasted like well… wheat. I guess you need to put 3/4 cup whole wheat to every 1 cup of regular all-purpose flour…
Regardless, I re-made the dough with regular old-fashioned white flour and the cookies WERE AMAZING. (more…)

Every year, since I was a baby, my family has made these Christmas cookies (will share recipe on the blog next week!) AND Polish gingerbread (Piernik) (this one too!) covered with a chocolate glaze… yummy.
So Simple. So fun. So good.
We use (organic) sugar crystals and crushed walnuts for the toppings of the cookies. My aunt stepped it up a notch, making thinner versions (so they can be stacked and not be too thick) with jam in the middle.
I leave the Polish cookies and piernik duty to my Dad and aunt! I decided to start my own tradition and make thumbprints. The recipe is quite similar, yet different! They have been a hit the past 2 years, so I thought I’d share them with you… (more…)
