Our Favorite Christmas Cookies

Sandra Sanders

Back in the day, Fayette Woman hosted a tea party and cookie exchange. For several years, we had a lovely event at the Fayette County Library which included hats and gloves, tea, and deliciously homemade holiday cookies.

We brought that idea back to our Hats & Holidays tea at Heartis in November. One participant, Sandra Sanders, swept all the categories with her festive, tasty entries. The recipes she used are all online so we’re sharing photos and links to those for your pleasure.

Thank you Sandra!
