Christmas Cookies!

Curling up with a plate of Christmas cookies!

Christmas Cookie baking time is here! I imagine many of you will be in your kitchens hiding in a cloud of sugar and flour and turning out batch after batch of cookie goodness!

Me?  I have completed my baking and am just getting ready to settle in with a plate of Christmas cookies and a bit of Christmas reading!

Apple and Green Chile Scandi Heart Empanadas to Celebrate Lucia Day and Guadalupe Day.

Apple and Green Chile Empanadas

"Apple and Green Chile Empanadas" to celebrate both the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12th) and Lucia Day (Dec. 13th)!

I am not from Mexico nor Catholic, and there is no Scandinavian blood in my recent ancestry, but I always celebrate December 12th and 13th - and quite often by blending the two cultural traditions that have so completely influenced my art, craft, heart and Winter Holiday celebrations.

German Lebkuchen! Norwegian Christmas Cookies! Two completely different cookies so why are they together in one post? Because they love to be kept in an air tight tin till the holidays - gives them time to work their magic and become even tastier than they were when first baked. Thanksgiving weekend is a perfect time to bake them and then hide them in pretty Christmassy tins for a couple weeks.
