I’m so excited to participate in the 12 Days of Christmas with One Creative Mommy & 12 other talented bloggers this year! Good luck to each and everyone who enters, there are lots of fun prizes! I am offering a $25 eGiftcard to Harry & David, one of my favorite indulgences, to one lucky winner! What I love about Christmas time is spending time with family and friends. I love baking and decorating cookies and I especially love developing new and interesting recipes to try, sometimes these little experiments end up as nothing more than a funny kitchen disaster story, but for the most part the results are delicious!
I saw these cashew crisps in a magazine a couple months ago, and wanted to try putting a little Christmas spin on it. The results were a crispy, candy like cookie. They almost remind me of chips because they are so thin and crispy! I love chewy, gooey cookies as well, but these are definitely for the crispy cookie lovers out there! Yummy!
