If you love Christmas as much as I do, it’s your favorite time of the year! One of my favorite things about Christmas is the amazing and creative desserts, especially the cookies. I remember making batches of thumbprint cookies with my Grammy and then sharing them at our Cookie Swap at church. Cookies make everyone happy and bring joy to our hearts and bellies!
