One of my favorite childhood traditions was the baking of Christmas cookies. My mom, my brother, and I would spend hours in the steamy, sweet-smelling kitchen mixing, rolling, forming, baking, and decorating. It was so fun and people always loved to get our goodies. Best yet, we loved eating them too!
As I’m working toward healthier eating, meaning pretty-paleo, gluten-free, and low or no refined sugar, I have been looking for recipes to use for this year’s treats. I may just dip into Mom’s favorite, The Joy of Cooking, and doctor up some of those recipes to fit new dietary needs. Until then, I thought I’d share these with you. I haven’t made them yet, but I’ll let you know my results when I do! Enjoy!
