'Tis the season to indulge in festive treats.

So, contrary to our current weather situation, we are in fact just weeks away from Christmas day .... 21 days to be exact.

Traditionally, my family does a fair bit of Christmas baking together. Holiday baking was one of my favourite things to do with my mom when I was a kid, and it brings back a ton of happy memories for me.

We usually bake shortbread cookies, chocolate chip and Newfoundland snowballs (if you haven't tried these you are missing out!)

We haven't started baking yet this year, but I've been told that today is actually National Cookie Day ... seems like a good day to start!

Have you started your holiday baking? What are the Christmas cookie staples in your household?
