Custard Cookies

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s one week till Christmas and:

Custard Cookies 1 -GB

1) How on earth did we get here? I mean last time I checked we had just passed Thanksgiving. In Canada.

2) I have almost all my shopping, almost all my baking, almost all my cooking and almost all my wrapping done. Almost.

3) I never think I ever have enough holiday cookies made. Until I pull them all out. And then am utterly shocked at the sheer number that I end up with

4) Kids and the holidays are the absolute best.

5) Sometime the adults like Christmas toys as much as the kids.

6) I may have to spend the rest of my life on the treadmill.

7) These cookies are tasty.

I stumbles across this recipe from Bits of Sunshine, and fell in love with it right away ( by the way cutest blog EVER!) Not only are they super simple to make, but they offer a unique twist on a classic cookie. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a last minute holiday cookie!
