Do you love baking Christmas treats? Are you looking for some new ideas? Are you craving the taste of home Christmas cookies and sweets?

Then you are in the right place! Today I am joined by 6 other talented ladies as we share a virtual Christmas cookie and sweet treats exchange! You are going to love all their delicious recipes!

I absolutely love the Christmas season. Now, I am not a very good cook, but I do love baking. Even so, my poor cooking skills do come through and I have had my fair share of failures unfortunately.

I did, however, find this amazing recipe for a type of shortbread/sugar cookie with the most beautiful glaze. Not only are the cookies delicious, they are so pretty – like pieces of art! Each one is different, just like snowflakes, and you will not believe how easy it was to make them. Click here for the full post.

Up next is my lovely friend Kristy from At Home with Kristy, who actually put this whole sweet exchange together. Kristy is a very successful interior designer who lives in Texas and is a true southern gal. For 30 years she has been designing and decorating luxury model homes and private residences. Big news for Kristy is that she was also just featured on the cover of a magazine for her Christmas decor. Kristy has the best recipe for thin mints and you won’t believe it only has three ingredients!!! Click here for her full post.
