We’ve been eating Thanksgiving leftovers all week, but I’ve fully launched into Christmas mode! We got a tree and decorated the house last weekend and I’ve been listening to Christmas music on repeat… it’s not even December yet, but I don’t mind! An extended Christmas season is fine by me! All the more time to bake Christmas cookies!

I have a big, long list of my holiday cookie favorites to bake this year, but each year I also like to try out a few new ones! These White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Candy Cane Cookies are my latest holiday creation 🙂 They will appeal to adults, children and of course be a big hit with Santa! They bake up thin, chewy and delicious!
