My favorite holiday recipes: Candy Cane Blossoms

Holiday Baking Season

I have been away from the world of blogging for a while now, but that does not mean I have been away from baking.  As a mother of two and a full time accountant, I decided to put this little blog on the back burner for a while.  I could not forget the importance of sharing beloved holiday recipes. For the next three weeks I have decided I am going to share with you some of my favorite holiday recipes, some old and some new.  I hope you enjoy!

This first recipe has become a fan favorite on Baked Perfection to I thought it would be a perfect kick-off.  These cookies are so festive and delicious.
