Christmas Cookies … my favorite recipe!

christmas-cookiesI have been making these Christmas cookies for many years and always getting highly enthusiastic comments about them.  They are truly my favorite.

They are not my mother’s recipe … actually I think these are better than hers … (sorry Mom!). Many years ago, as I was traveling from New York to Charleston, I bought a “local recipe cookbooks” published by  Charleston’s old ladies – you know the kind I mean.  Anyway, I adapted the Christmas cookie recipe I found in the book, and I am happy to share it with you!  Enjoy!!
