For the past week I've been making a different Christmas cookie every evening. A few to enjoy now and the rest are put away in the freezer to bring out on Christmas. I'm running out of Christmas cookie recipes so thought I would host a "Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange" with all of you! I'll start by sharing a cookie that I LOVE...it's a MUST for any CHOCOHOLIC!!
