Ah, Christmas is coming! Do you know what I remember most about Christmas parties when I was little? Cookies!

I love Christmas cookies! But let’s be honest, at this point in the holiday season, we’re all realizing that we’ve fallen off the healthy eating wagon in a big way… and yet, we’re only halfway through – we still have lots of desserts to make, so…

We need an arsenal of healthy cookie recipes! These cookies are beautiful, and while I obviously haven’t been able to try every recipe, I’ve certainly looked at each and everyone, and drooled a lot more than I care to admit. 😛

So enjoy! And be healthy this Christmas.
