It’s Christmas week! I hope everyone is getting their bake on. And to help you out, I am going to be re-running some old recipes in addition to the new Wednesday recipe. These were the top tested cookies last year, but if you are making cookies this week don’t forget about the Coconut Top Hats from last week. Enjoy!

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. Although there are only 10 kinds...

Well, we’ve brought you some amazing vintage Christmas cookies these past few days so now, in true Mid-Century Menu fashion, it’s time to bring you some cookies that aren’t so great.
