25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Gingerbread Whoopie Pies

25 Days of Christmas Cookies is winding down with only a few more days! It has been fun baking every day and sharing the recipes I have enjoyed this season.  I have to admit that I have never had a real whoopie pie before.  I have seen that there are special pans sold at kitchen stores, but this recipe didn’t call for one.  They were easy and delicious! The hint of lemon in the frosting was unexpected, but I truly enjoyed it.

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: M&M Cookies

At Christmas time, my mom always has a little bowl of red and green M&Ms.  She has a little more restraint than I do and they seem to last her the whole season.  I bought some this year, but knew as soon as I opened them that they would be gone in less than a week.  Therefore, I chose to make festive M&M cookies instead!

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Toffee

There is something so addictive about toffee.  I am not sure if its the chocolate, or the caramel, but I am pretty sure it is the crunch! This recipe from DamnDelicious.net is easy and tastes delicious! I sprinkled sea salt flakes on half and I like it both with and without.  Toffee is the perfect treat to pack up in a tin to deliver to the neighbors!
