More 24/7 MOMS E-Cookie Exchange

Today I baked a batch of cookies to ship to my #1 Son who is off at college trying as I am trying to include him in our family Christmas count down tradition. ( Click here to read more about the Novotny’s count down tradition). Once again I realized how much I enjoy this time of year and spending time in the kitchen baking.

It is also so much fun to receive each of your favorite Christmas baking recipes and imagine how yummy they must each taste.
