Sweet Treat

Thought I'd share this recipe with you as I haven't made any cards recently. I love to bake but I don't do much since my kids are grown up but I always bake in the weeks leading to Christmas. I usually make Turtles (OMG!!), pecan puffs and shortbread...Scottish and Canadian. This year I wanted to add to the menu and when I was talking to my little sister yesterday she told me she'd been at her friends and they made Kris Kringle cookies and they were amazing! I decided tonight was the night so I went to Sainsbury's this morning and got all the ingredients. The recipe says it makes 72 cookies but I think I got closer to 80!!! And can I tell you.... they are d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!!!! So I thought I'd share the recipe with you :D
