{December 18th} Happy National Bake Cookies Day with Even More Cookie Recipes

Happy National Bake Cookies Day! If you haven't baked today, you still have time! I baked four different types of cookie recipes today and several non bake Christmas goodies. This time of the year I find myself baking more, EATING cookies and of course giving the cookies away as Christmas gifts. Food makes for some tasty gift giving to family and friends. Do you bake or make any treats and give as gifts? If so what do you make? If you have been following my blog the past month then you have caught some of my 30 Days of Christmas Goodies which has included some tasty cookie recipes. 

If you are looking for some new ideas to bake today then try the below cookies from guest chef Maria Zoitas’ who is the creator of “Maria’s Homemade” line of prepared food sold exclusively at Westside Market NYC. Each batch makes 24 cookies! They are all easy to make and would make great gifts for Christmas.
