Old-World Christmas Cookie Round-Up
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Working on the theory that it's better to be a week or two early, than a day too late, I wanted to post these old-world Christmas cookies while you still have time to consider them. I don't make all these cookies every year, but three or four types will make it to the cookie platter before the holiday arrives. I vary my choices from year to year and the only constant among them is rosettes. They tell a tale, but I'll save that for a date closer to Christmas. If you like to include some old-world trappings with your modern Christmas, I hope you give one or two of these cookies a try. They are all delicious. Here are the recipes.
Pan de Polvo (Mexican Wedding Cakes)
Bittersweet Chocolate Snowballs
Moravian Spice Cookies
Florentine Lace Cookies
Swedish Ginger Crackles
