Recipe Roundup: Holiday Cookies

By Alexandra Caspero on December 7, 2012

Oh December! I wait for you every year. A whole month of parties and delicious food!?

I wish it could be like this all year.

This weekend I am participating in one of my favorite traditions… the cookie swap! My girlfriends and I meet up every Christmas with enough flour & butter to spread cheer well into the new year. Pair with wine, hot cocoa, and holiday movies (Love Actually, Home Alone, The Holiday) it doesn’t get much better. While I count down the hours until I get to bake and hang with my fav ladies, I thought this would be a perfect excuse to round-up the cookie recipes I have been eying.

I don’t know where to start!? No bake peppermint patty bars? Chocolate Peppermint Cookies? THE Christmas cookie?

It’s a good bet that I will have a sugar hang-over on Sunday. And for this special occasion, I am perfectly OK with that.

This recipe offers both a traditional and vegan version. I love the idea of dipping lemon cookies into chocolate! Fun for kids & parties.
