Well today's the big day!
It's time for us to link up our favorite Christmas cookies with Jodi @ Pleasant Home. I'm guest blogging at her party and I hope all of you will link your cookies and join in the fun. My thanks to Jodi who has one of the best sites in blogland. From quilting to cupcakes I love everything she shares, and often boast I am her biggest fan! I hope you like the cookies I made and have posted HERE
You may also know I am a fan of Betty's cookie mixes. Here is another 2010 prizewinner, made simple with her sugar cookie mix and cream cheese frosting. Of course you can make your own too!
