It's the Holiday Season

It's that time of year again people! It's time to wake up at the crack of dawn and stand in 3 hour lines for Christmas presents. It's time to get on the wobbly ladder and hang the Christmas lights. It's time to have the smell of an evergreen tree permeating your house. It's time to get in the kitchen and bake, bake, bake and then bake some more Christmas cookies!

TWD started off the Holiday baking with Linzer Sables, chosen by our first male TWD-er, Dennis of Living the Life! And I have to say that this recipe is pretty easy going. I sometimes hate when it seems like Holiday cookies take more effort to make than they do to enjoy. But these cookies were simple and straight forward.
I still don't know if I'm a big fan of them yet. I'm not sure how I feel about the cookie itself. It was good and crisp, but for me tasted a little bland. I also am not a fan of inhaling powdered sugar when I eat my cookie so I chose to fore go suffocation this time around :)
There's plenty more to bake and plenty more to decorate, so stay tuned for more Holiday Baking!

They look wonderful! Hopefully they grow on you. I inhaled my share of powdered sugar while eating them, but they just looked so pretty when they got dusted :)

Nice job Steph! I hope you end up liking 'em in the long run!

I thought these cookies were more pretty than tasty, but it seems plenty of people loved them!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Yours are so cute.

Maybe a pinch more salt would have upped the flavor?

The holes in your cookies are so much better looking than mine! I hope these grow on you because I thought these were amazing.
