It’s Christmas cookie season! Who’s hungry?
In this installment of Erin’s Recipe Card, Erin goes beyond the beloved-but-mundane sugar cookie to introduce Bri, Rachel and Sarah to a new-to-them Christmas classic: the lace cookie. Blending flour, sugar, oats, nuts and lots of butter (never margarine!) into a satisfyingly crunchy treat, Erin’s latest recipe is sure to be a sweet addition to seasonal cookie trays.
While they nibble, the Ladies also wax lyrical about their own favorite Christmas cookie memories and recipes. From thumbprints to no-bakes, peanut blossoms to pfefferneuse, podcasting doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
