christmascookiesIt’s cold outside but cozy inside the inn with a roaring fire in the fireplace and sparkling Christmas tree lights reflecting in the window. The snow outside is beautiful and the temps are cold – a great time to be in the inn, safe and comfortable looking out. Our guests yesterday were grateful for a variety of hot cocoa and tea to drink with their homemade frosted orange cookies and church windows. My mother made church windows since I was a child and I love these rich confections made with chocolate, coconut, mini- marshmallows and pecans. The orange cookie recipe is from a guest who brought these delicacies she made from her grandmother’s recipe. Such fun! They’re pretty as well as delicious! We’re always glad to share recipes.
