Wreath Cookies

Christmas is full of traditions, spending time with family, and creating beautiful memories!  One tradition that I will always cherish is the time I spent making Christmas cookies with my mom.  We would make the same delicious cookies each year and occasionally add a new cookie.  Wreath Cookies were always one of my favorite treats and until I made them this year, I forgot how yummy they tasted.

I love that I can now carry on the wonderful tradition of making Christmas cookies with my own children.  They really enjoy helping me in the kitchen and they love baking cookies. Kids love helping make Wreath Cookies, the green color, getting messy hands, and eating them!  Wreath Cookies are festive, fun, and tasty! My four year old even likes the cinnamon candy! My parents are here visiting and it was especially nice to do the baking with everyone together!
