Day 2 Mistletoe Make & Bake Blog Tour

Need a holiday sanity saving tip?
I buy or rather MAKE the same gift for as many friends and family members as I can. Two years ago, I made aprons and last year I made potatoe bags.
This year?? that's a Christmas secret ;)
**********************
Each year we make several different kinds of cookies too.  I have been making these Andes Mint Cookies for over 20 years.
Hope you enjoy them!
