I really hope that you are enjoying Christmas Cookies Week as much as I am! For my last recipe, I chose a recipe that showcased one of my family's favorite flavors, lemon. We are all huge fans of sandwich cookies as well, so I knew this one would be a winner.


The dough ingredients are pantry staples, and it comes together so quickly. I used a cookie scoop to portion the dough, which make getting uniform cookies a breeze. I snuck a spoonful of the filling before I started assembling cookies, and I could've eaten the whole bowl, it was so good.

These cookies are so tender, they practically melt in your mouth. If you're not going to eat them right away, be sure to keep them in the fridge. Thank you so much to Bernice M. for sharing this recipe. It's definitely going to…

Are you enjoying #ChristmasCookiesWeek so far? There are so many great recipes being shared, my Pinterest boards are about to explode.  I pinned this recipe from Taste of Home a while back, and I'm constantly getting notifications that people have repinned it or tried it. 

As I was going through possible recipes to make for this week, I decided I had to put this on on the list.  I used a cookie scoop and a little wooden press to form the cups. Make sure you spray the tin well, or you will have sticking. The only change I made to the recipe was to use festively colored sprinkles instead of the chocolate ones. 

These are chocolate-y and decadent.  They look fancy but are so simple to make!  Thank you to Patricia H. for sharing her recipe, I'm so glad that I can add myself to the …

Waffle Iron Cookies

For my third Christmas Cookies Week recipe, I wanted to try a little something different.  I ran across this recipe for Waffle Iron Cookies from Taste of Home on Pinterest, and they looked so fun to make! Though I own two waffle irons, both of them are considered "Belgian" models. I used the one that seemed more shallow of the two, and just allowed extra time for them to cook.

The original recipe called for a dusting of powdered sugar, but I thought I'd make them a little more festive with a glaze and some sprinkles.  I love how they collect in the little squares. Since my iron was a little deeper than a regular one, I got 24 cookies from the recipe. They disappeared very, very quickly.  Thanks so much to Judy T. for sharing her recipe!

Since my guys are both allergic to tree nuts, there are lots of recipes from my childhood that I can’t make anymore.One of the ones I miss around the holidays are Totos or chocolate meatball cookies.Every Italian family has a version of them, traditionally with walnuts in the dough, and my family sprinkled more walnuts on top.

I was venting (okay, maybe I was whining) to my friend Kathy about how much I missed them. She told me that she makes a variation of them that uses chopped maraschino cherries instead of the walnuts, and she was nice enough to share the recipe.
I only made one slight change to the version she gave me, and that was in the size of the scoop.I used a tablespoon sized cookie scoop instead of a teaspoon. Using a scoop makes getting even portions a breeze, but be sure…
