I know these are simple cookies with peppermint Hershey's Kisses on them but I just couldn't resist posting them, they're so cute! I'm getting into some serious holiday spirit already, a record early cheer from me. I certainly wouldn't turn down a box of these babies!

Some birds just won't settle for sticks and hair and dirt to make a nest. They need shredded coconut, lovingly hand-dyed and placed on a cookie. Of course these most special of all birds only lay candy eggs, my favorite!
Red and white do make a fantastic combo, don't they? And snowflakes are so satisfying in their symmetry and fragility. Basically, winter is magic, and the buttery, spicy delicious treats we get to indulge in without any guilt make the holidays rich. Bring on the cookies, I'm ready!
