The 12 Goodies of Christmas: Cowboy Cookies

Christmas is a magical time of year. It’s the time we look forward to spending time with family, giving Christmas presents, sending cards, and it’s that one time of year where we open our hearts and warm our spirits with goodwill toward others. But let’s be honest — the best part of Christmas is the food: cookies, cakes, fudge, hard candy, soft candy, gingerbread, eggnog, and a million other goodies that are dangerously irresistible. It’s Christmas, so the calories don’t count until the new year anyway. Cypress has gathered 12 recipes of sweets and treats to share with you — and don’t worry, we tested them out too. Try out a recipe or two and let us know how your goodies turned out. Have a recipe of your own? Share it with us! We’d love to try it!
