Some of the Best Holiday Memories Are Made in the KItchen


Some of my favorite childhood memories were made in the kitchen with my family while making special Holiday cookies and treats. The rolling pin, bread board, big  trays and pans were brought out. My family made intricate, fancy cookies that took hours to make. They were eaten in a fraction of the time it took to make. I thought, when I get older, I will only find easy recipes to make. Well here you go, super easy. I found this on the Kraft website. Enjoy!
