Hope everyone is all geared up for Christmas! If your holiday spirit hasn’t reached a fever pitch yet, I might have something to get your motor running. Here are the ten vintage Christmas cookie recipes we tried this year! (If you want to be ultra-festive, you could even sing the list to the 12 Days of Christmas while you read the list.

This is it! The 10th Day! And on the 10th Day of Vintage Christmas cookies, I gave to Tom… Fancy Layer Cookies!! I was actually really excited to make these bars.

Isn’t that the best name ever? When I say it I feel like Ralphie telling Santa what BB...

What can I saw about almond-flavored baked goods, except that I love them? I thought everyone’s vintage-inspired cookie plate should have at least one almond treat on it, and if you love almond these bars are totally it.
