Aren’t you just drooling over these yummy candy cane crisps cookies? Today’s guest blogger is Jill from Dreaming All Day.  I first met Jill at Online Blogcon, and I have fallen in love with her website.  Be sure to check out all of her fantastic recipes, home decor, and crafts!  Take it away, Jill!

*Since writing this post, Jill has stopped blogging, and her website has been taken down. So that you don’t get sent to Never-Never-Land, I’ve unlinked the links to her website.

I’m so excited to participate in the 12 Days of Christmas with One Creative Mommy & 12 other talented bloggers this year! What I love about Christmas time is spending time with family and friends. I love baking and decorating cookies, and I especially love developing new and interesting recipes to try.  Sometimes these little experiments end up as nothing more than a funny kitchen disaster story, but for the most part, the results are delicious!

I saw these cashew crisps in a magazine a couple months ago and wanted to try putting a little Christmas spin on them. The results were a crispy, candy-like cookie. They almost remind me of chips because they are so thin and crispy! I love chewy, gooey cookies as well, but these are definitely for the crispy cookie lovers out there! Yummy!
