Merry Christmas! (And Bonus Recipe!)

I wanted to take the opportunity today to wish all my readers a very merry Christmas! I also thought I would share one of my favorite holiday (or anytime) recipes. This is a family recipe, handed down with minimal instructions ("mix this, add that, throw it on a sheet and bake until done"), so I've done my best to make it shareable. These cookies are amazing. At least I think so. They have a very cake-like texture, with a taste similar to madelines. They are great with frosting, but equally yummy just plain. And they freeze really well. In fact, my mom used to store them in the freezer or refrigerator and we would pull them out and eat them cold. Weird, but delicious. They're also great for giving away, because a full batch will make about 5 dozen cookies. Enjoy!

With the busyness of the holiday season and family staying with us for the next week, the blog will probably be fairly quiet for the rest of the month. Plus, I'm using our winter school break to edit, edit, edit! But I'm hoping to share new and exciting things with you in the new year. Thank you for making this first year of my blog a successful one. I hope 2014 is filled with joy and brings you closer to your own goals and dreams.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
