🎄It's time to start baking! Love Christmas cookies and this year the 'bar' cookies will be front and center. My Christmas Ribbon Jam bars were a huge hit with the neighbors, that I am going to do them again. Adding Turtle Bars, Pecan cranberry fudge, Millionaire bars,
and one more but haven't decided.
What special cookies are you making this year? Do you have a favorite bar recipe? Let's get baking!

Turns out that the Madrid twists are very sensitive to flour amount and now that Mom isn't baking as much, her flour settled more and we were getting too much. I keep meaning to experiment and determine the exact weight necessary to make it work but these are such a holiday cookie in my head that I've never done it. It feels wrong, you know?
The final list was chocolate-cherry almond clusters, peanut butter balls, chocolate-mint pinwheels, cardamom orange thumbprints, rugalach, Madrid Twists, jewel cookies, Russian tea cakes, peanut butter blossoms, chocolate caramel thumbprints, and vanilla almond sables.
The photo is the tray I put out this morning at work. There's also a home-made fruit cake.
Do you give them as gifts?
White chocolate, green pistachios, red dried cranberries.
Or, if you don't like the white chocolate, go with dark or milk chocolate, but keep the red & green mix'ins.
PS - BB you always ask such good seasonal questions about what people are doing.
