Delicious Christmas Cookies at CCG Ped’s Blog
One of the gifts my husband and I got when we were married was a dutch cookbook. I am not dutch but over the years I have enjoyed using some of the recipes. I am going to share the best Christmas cookie recipe with you, it has sour cream in it. These cookies are soft and taste heavenly. Oh, I can’t forget the icing, I will include that also.
