five homemade christmas treats!

t's Christmas week!  That's totally a thing right?  Christmas week?  It's like how you get a whole week for your birthday, right?  Right.  Since I'm sure we'll all be indulging in a few seasonal treats this next week I thought I'd share some of my favorite holiday recipes from Christmases past.  Do you have a favorite holiday treat?  When I was a kid we used to get these Santa cookies every year from one of my grandparents' good friends.  Each year she'd make these big Santa sugar cookies and frosted them with some delicious frosting to look just like Santa.  I always loved opening the package from her and getting our yearly Santa cookie.  There's just nothing quite like a home baked goodie.  People say that they can taste the love baked in, which can sound silly, but sometimes I think it's true.  

Nowadays I'd say that my favorite holiday treats are boozy holiday beverages.  One of my favorites this year has been Mulled Cider with a splash of whiskey.  Hot Buttered Rum and Eggnog are also some great drinks and adding peppermint schnapps to hot cocoa is one of our holiday traditions!
