Here’s the deal. Basically I wish I could have each and every one of you over to my house for some cocktails and cookies to celebrate the holiday season. You guys are awesome. For realz. Your comments and enthusiasm for cooking make my day! And you’re funny. And I’m pretty sure we would be friends in real life too. Which is why I’m totally bummed I can’t have a giant party with lots of delicious treats for us to share. So instead, I’m doing the next best thing. What you ask? Well isn’t it obvious? I’m sharing one of my new, but quickly becoming my favorite Christmas cookie and asking you to #PullUpAChair and eat some with me!!

    Was just eating peppermint bark at Williams Sonoma the other day thinking it would taste so good in cookie form. You’ve made my day, thank you!

    Made these for cookie baskets to give to the neighbors this Christmas – they were so good, I almost didn’t want to give them away! Really, the best cookie recipe I’ve come across in a long time – thanks so much for sharing Gaby! I live in a small town, so there was no peppermint bark to be bought, so I made my own, which I was able to add the leftovers to the cookie baskets – bonus!
