Bake to your Heart's Desire with Christmas Cookies Week

Tis the season for snow flurries, caroling and of course, Christmas Cookies!  This week I'm joining forces with 33 other bloggers to bring you over 100 festive cookie recipes, perfect for your holiday cookie platter.  I'm excited to be sharing my husband grandmother's Delicious Cookies with you tomorrow, my go-to Holiday Cut-Out Sugar Cookies on Wednesday and my classic No Bake Cookies on Friday.  All three of my cookies are tried and true recipes that have been favorites of my family for years, decades and even generations!

Christmas Cookies Week: 100+ Recipes and 4 Giveaways perfect for every home baker

I love making Christmas Cookies all month long so I can have a large variety of treats to choose from to make several Christmas cookie platters for neighbors, get togethers with friends and family holiday gatherings.  I actually started making Christmas Cookies right after Thanksgiving and I'm a little ashamed to admit, but my family and I have already ate an entire batch of Peanut Butter Balls...  I'm excited to make more of those and get inspired by all the recipes being shared this week.  Thank you to Ellen at Family Around the Table and Christie at A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures for hosting #ChristmasCookiesWeek.

Besides all the great recipes being shared, we have some generous sponsors that have put together some awesome prize packages, perfect for every home baker!  What giveaway would you love to win?  Remember to Comment for a Cause, enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post, and get baking!

Prize Package #1:

From Adams Extracts comes a selection of baking delights including their prize-winning pound cake mix, pure vanilla extract, pure peppermint extract, double strength pure vanilla extract, pound cake flavor extract and vanilla cinnamon sugar.   Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla was sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams, whose imagination was stirred by his wife’s yearning for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out, announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted.  

Prize Package #2:
