Graham Cracker Cookies

My first thought after writing the title to this post is that I need to come up with a better name for these “cookies”! Feel free to share some ideas in the comment section! Every year, I bake Christmas cookies with my Mom and Grandma; this is one of my very favorite traditions and I’m so happy we are still able to enjoy this day together each year. These ‘graham cracker cookies’ are always Continue reading
