I think it's a great way to bond, and also share the love with others - who can resist cookies?
We made use of two recipes we found online - reindeer cookie and peppermint ball cookie (which I had decided to call reindeer droppings because they look like poop AND have crushed peppermint on them). In terms of changing up the recipe a little bit, the reindeer cookie was supposed to be made out of peanut butter, but we opted for sugar cookies instead in case of allergies. The sugar cookie recipe is my friend Keltie's family recipe - so I am not in possession of it :(
I definitely recommend that you try making these cookies - they are a LOT of fun, adorable and delicious.
