Italian Christmas Cookies

Sunday, December 09, 2018
 Last week my school hosted a cookie exchange.  I've been putting this together for at least ten years now.  I'll share more about it in a few days, but in the meantime, this is the cookie recipe I brought this year.  I'll put a link below the full printable.  I always try out something new (which is our whole goal).  These were a new route for me, they were more of a sandy cookie, not as sweet as some, with a little hint of almond and lemon.  I liked the fact that you can sprinkle them any color you want.  I found instead of dipping my cookies, I spooned icing on top.  I also just used real butter instead of butter flavored crisco because it's what I had on hand. 

Here is a link to a free printable. 
We always share the recipe, which is great b/c you can keep the ones that meet your tasting standards likes and dislikes, and you can toss the others.
