Oh it’s the most wonderfullll time of the yearrrrr. If you can’t tell I love Christmas. A lot. I love the snow, the pretty lights, and of course the cookies. I actually think the food that comes out around Christmas time is the best. Sugar cookies with thick icing. Hot Chocolate. Fancy spicy drinks. All the pies and cakes. Ugh it really is the best time of year.

I have TWENTY, yes twenty, different vegan christmas cookie recipes and you bet that my plan is to try all of these in the next week and a half until christmas.
