M&M Holiday Cookies

What a fun way to get the Holiday started by baking! I love baking this time of year and cookies can be the easiest thing to make! Holiday cookies can also be used as a great homemade Christmas gift! Stack the cookies (like noted above) get a cute Christmas ribbon and bam.. you’re ready to go! you can also put the cookies into a festive bag or do cookies in a jar! Or just eat them 🙂

Either way you decide to do it, this M&M Holiday Cookie recipe will do the trick!
