It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

December has always been my favorite month of the year:  I get to enjoy the double whammy of both my birthday AND Christmas. Double the presents, double the fun. I’ve never been let down.

This year was no exception.  We went back to New York for a wedding and the city was already decked out in its holiday splendor:  Christmas tree vendors on every corner, sparkling lights on every store and lots of sales at the stores. And now that we’re back home, I get to enjoy le noel parisien. The Christmas music starts now and the tree goes up this weekend. Vive le noel!

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is baking yummy treats.  Each year I make a few tried-and-true recipes, but also like to discover new ones.  Below are some of each.  Do you have a favorite Christmas cookie recipe?  Please share!
