In celebration of A Handful of Everything’s 1st Blogiversary (it was on October 25th!), 13 bloggers are getting together to post recipes for the 12 days of Bloggy Christmas! Every day there will be a new post on each of our pages sharing a bloggers recipe. Afterwards on the 13th of December please join us for a Christmas Cookie Exchange Link Party! Bring your family favorite recipe, or a new cookie you wanted to bake for Christmas! I know, I have a few I’d love to share!
Christmas is my favorite time of year! Eggnog is out, the smell of cinnamon is in the air in stores, and the rainy season is in full swing (we don’t get snow here unless somehow it makes its way to the Valley floor, which is never.), and the month I feel okay about making tons of sweets!
Today I’ll be sharing one of my favorite sugary cookies -Snickerdoodles and a Cinnamon Caramel Frosting to go on top! I love the taste, and smell of cinnamon, so this was fun coming up with a frosting to be paired with the cookies! Really, you could put this frosting on any dessert and it would taste amazing.
