I am not a baker of Christmas cookies. I can't bake cookies very well at all. It seems to me that once a year I bake chocolate chip cookies and its always in the winter. Around this time of year as I think about. Maybe I feel festive??? Weird, anywho I saw a pic of m&m shortbread cookies....so feeling festive as I do...I will give the recipe a try. With any luck they will look like either of these pictures. Ha Ha! Well at least I can't ruin sugar topped with sugar, right?????
