The countdown to Christmas is really on now! If you’re like me you have the shopping mostly done and your menu planned. All that is left to do is some holiday baking. Check out our Pinterest Board Cookie Exchange for some fun holiday recipes. Even though it is fun to whip up a batch of dreidel shaped cookies or maybe even a snowman; when it all comes down to it, what people really like are Chocolate Chip Cookies. Here is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve found. If you want to make them festive for the holidays, sprinkle some colored sugar on top or mix in some fancy sprinkles like Sweetapolita to make them really feel like the holidays.
