Do you enjoy baking during the holidays? I usually set aside a day or two to make all of my favorite cookies, plus a few new recipes that look too good to resist.

It’s a tradition that my mom started with my sister and I years ago. Now that I live so far away from where I grew up, baking my family favorites is a great way to carry on the fun.

Unique and fun to make, you'll want to make these Christmas cookies every holiday season! | Hello Little HomeI absolutely love these Poppy Seed Kiss Cookies! The yummy flavor brings me straight back to my childhood, and I can never resist grabbing one (or three) when I walk by a platter.

This is definitely a cookie you could eat year round, but I think of them as a holiday cookie. I guess old habits die hard!

Unlike many Christmas cookies, these Poppy Seed Kiss Cookies are a snap to make. After preparing the easy dough, you’ll roll it into balls, add a thumbprint, then bake the cookies until they’re golden on the bottom. Once the cookies come out of the oven, simply add the chocolate kisses while the cookies are still hot.
