The Magic of Christmas Cookies
This year we are working on being purposeful for Christmas. In our schedule, it is our normal year to go on a big family vacation during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. However, this year we are spending that money on bringing on orphan “on vacation” to our house. We are also working on doing Random Acts of Kindness through the advent season and striving to teach our children the importance of blessing others during the holiday season instead of being focused on gifts, gifts, gifts. The gifts under the tree will be few (although special) and love will abound! Memories will be made and I do not expect we will miss the stress of that big family vacation much at all.
As part of the simplicity of our gift giving and random acts of kindness, we are making several plates of Christmas Cookies to share with our friends, elderly neighbors, church members in the nursing home, and teachers. There is just something special about a plate of Christmas Cookies made with love – wouldn’t you agree? Receiving a plate of homemade Christmas Cookies warms your heart, and the gift of giving them warms your heart even more.
One of our family favorites are these:
They are super fast to make, and delicious beyond measure. You can also top them with sprinkles instead of almonds for a more child-friendly festive look.
