I’m not going to lie, this Christmas season has been an epic ride for me! In truth, I was thrilled to bring back the beloved 12 Days of Christmas Cookies with 12 new cookie recipes in a row! I also had the ambitious goal of 12 days on YouTube where I filmed some videos for fan favorites from Christmases past like Moravian Chrismtas Cookies. We didn’t quite make the 12 days in a row on YouTube but I hope you’ll forgive me!
In the meantime, my online Pastry SHOP sold a record 400 cookie gift tins! My team worked in overdrive (until the wee hours) to make, package and ship 14,012 Christmas cookies. Altogether, that means we made, rolled, cut, baked and decorated over 1,000 Pounds of cookie dough! 😵
If you didn’t get your hands on one of our Christmas Tins this year before we sold out, no stress, because I’ve got you here on CLF! Here are 12 damn good Christmas Cookies you can bake instead right now! Likewise, don’t miss the 12 Days from 2014 or 2015, or my favorite xmas cookie of all time.
Let’s get this cookie party started!
