25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 15 – Chocolate Melting Snowmen

Something about an old-fashioned Christmas is hard to forget.
-Hugh Downs (1921- ), American newscaster.

Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ and recognizing the significance of that fact. It is also about family gathering and spending time together. Today, my son and his beautiful wife arrive to spend 12 glorious days with us and I for one am so excited I can barely contain myself.

My son and his wife live in Japan and I only have the opportunity to see them once every couple of years, thus my excitement at their visit. The house is clean, decorations are spread and we certainly need not worry about cookies. My only sadness is that my daughter and her fiance can not be here to share in our holiday celebrations.

You who have children still at home, be sure to hold them close and treasure the moment you have together. Time flys all too quickly.

I love the chocolaty melting snowmen, they are so adorable. I had to try my hand at making them, if only for novelty’s sake. Turns out they are not only adorable but tasty too. I was surprised to find peanut butter in the cookie and loved the chocolaty peanut taste. They go together quickly and are easy to make. A simple recipe well worth trying.

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 10 – Coconut Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate

“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” 
― Laura Ingalls Wilder

Every year as the presents are wrapped and placed under the Christmas Tree a tag is placed to label who is to receive the gift and who the present is from. Even though the kids are grown, and some with children of their own, I still find myself placing from Santa on a large portion of the gift tags. I am quite certain that everyone knows the gift is not from Santa, but there is something about the magic that the belief in Santa brings that lingers even still.

Coconut Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate right from the oven are deliciously crisp on the outside with a soft chewy center. When dipped in chocolate with a drizzle on top these cookies are taken to a whole new level. A quick and easy recipe to throw together with outstanding results. Tuck a roasted almond or two in the center before baking for a special added treat.

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 8 – Florentines

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
-Norman Vincent Peale

I awoke this morning to a winter wonderland. A beautiful blanket of snow covering everywhere I looked, and light snowflakes glittering as they fell, almost like magic. I grabbed my camera and my boots and headed outdoors to capture the wonder of the moment. First-Snow - Pure Grace Farms

I love snow. It leaves the world looking so clean and fresh and signifies for me a new beginning.

The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.  – Random Facts: fifty interesting facts about Christmas

All the lights are up at Pure Grace Farms thanks to my wonderful and dedicated husband Tim. Each year I ask him to do a little bit more for me with the decorations outside and he never disappoints. I love the yin and yang of our relationship. I ask and he delivers. Isn’t that the way it is supposed to be?  

Peppermint Stick Cookies have a refreshing cool mint flavor with a beautiful festive look.  Think North Pole, Santa, Elves and a Sleigh. Perfect to serve with either a frosty mug of milk or a steaming cup of hot cocoa.
