Christmas Holly Doodles

If you love Snickerdoodles, you will love the festive spin off this delicious classic cookie. These were one of my favorite Christmas cookies growing up. My mom would have the refrigerator stacked with Christmas tins of varying cookies during the holidays. It took me opening every tin to finally find my favorites. I hope you will like these as much as I do.
