Ok, so picture this: it's the last week of October. My kids are excitedly punching out ghosts, bats, and other spooky Halloween shapes from the cookie dough we've just rolled out.
And I say, "Hey guys...this little bit of dough here is for me...I have some Christmas cookies to make."
You see, the day before Halloween is a little late in the game to blog about Halloween cookies.
I knew these cookies were going to be something special enough to write about...and that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I found myself decorating Christmas trees, candy canes, and snowflakes in October.
But look at my willpower! I sat on this recipe until after Thanksgiving!
Not an easy task, let me tell you- these cookies are extraordinary.
