Have I mentioned that it’s my favorite time of the year? I love wearing the warmer layered looks paired with boots and scarves. I love the brightly colored lights on everyone’s homes, the smell of fresh Christmas trees, and the music. One of my favorite sights are the hundreds of cars carrying their Christmas trees home, because you know that the same excitement you felt decorating your own tree is about to be felt by others as well. Editor’s note: They’re also about to be really cold. If they’re planning on putting up lights. And then there’s the food! How many delicious flavors and aromas come out of this time of year?
But with all the spectacular colors, smells, and memories in the making…there are also drawbacks to this time of year. Let me just say that Christmas will be here before we know it. And that means we are in the hustle and bustle of Christmas parties, freezing temps, and long lines and crowds – whether that is traffic or just people in general. Crowds are what I dislike the most, since I’m claustrophobic.
But if all those negatives that I just listed have you down in the dumps, I’m certain I have something that will cheer you up and turn that frown upside down. How about a cookie that is so festive, bright and – did I mention? – easy, that it will have you singing Hallelujah from the rooftops. How do Peppermint Snickerdoodles sound?
These cookies are great to bring to any holiday gathering – or, how about whipping these up – get the kids involved – and setting them out for Santa on Christmas Eve (which also happens to be my birthday…just in case you were wondering). Either way, partygoers, Santa, or even your little family will enjoy these sweet treats!
