To kick off the Christmas Holiday season I am going to blog about cookies. Yes, cookies. For the next 25 days I will feature at least one cookie recipe a day on my blog. There will be all types of cookies for you to try, sugar, chocolate, sprinkles and maybe a few surprises in there as well. 


I want you to have fun with these cookies, feel free to add a little extra into some of the recipes too. Put on your ‘baking caps’ and get ready for ’25 Days of Cookies!’


To start off the month I am going with a very simple but festive cookie. A twitter friend of mine Rae Lewis Thornton (@raelt) asked me for a cookie for her Tree trimming. Rae is such a wonderful person. She truly is a ‘Diva living with AIDS’ She said wanted something, quick but festive. I thought of ‘Snowballs’!! Yes, they really do look like snowballs so enjoy! In honor of World AIDS Day I am picking Snowballs as the cookie of the day. Please check out Rae’s blog. She is very up front and honest about the disease!!
