One of my blog friends, Laura (Louella Reese), came up with the brilliant idea of having a “virtual” Christmas cookie swap. We’re each sharing one of our favorite cookie recipes on our blogs today and at the end of this post, you can click to the next recipe shared! I was one of the last people to respond with a traditional favorite recipe, naturally, so I decided to share a NEW favorite recipe. This recipe came from a friend I roomed with in college, Kaylyn. They are AMAZING! Scroll down below for the full recipe.
