I love baking at the holidays. It is the perfect way to relax during such a busy season, and homemade treats makes the best gifts. Here are a few of my favorite cookie recipes. I make the cherry shortbread cookies every year and they receive rave reviews. (Tip: If you don’t like dried cherries, you can easily sub for cranberries, nuts or even lavender ) I also whipped up the chocolate chip Nutella candy cane cookies and the peanut butter blossoms for a holiday party, which were quickly gobbled up. Time to get baking!
