What's Baking's December Roundup: Christmas Traditions

This month I was the host of the What's Baking recipe challenge.  I chose Christmas traditions (savory or sweet) because I love to see all the different traditions from family to family.  When I was a kid, I thought everyone celebrated the same way we did, and as I grew up I found that it seems like everyone had slightly different traditions than I did.

I apologize to the group for not participating this month.  I thought I would be able to get something made either while on vacation or immediately when I got back, but driving 16 hours alone in the car took more of a toll on me than I thought it would.  Please enjoy looking at the recipes the two participants chose to make and read more about their family's traditions:

Amanda from Our Italian Kitchen, made Christmas Sugar Cookies with Glazed Icing.  Her and her family gather every year and make cookies and this is a recipe that she likes to make.

Ange, from The Tiny Tyrant's Kitchen, made Ricotta Cookies.  Every year, she makes a ton of Christmas cookies and this year she decided to try a cookie she loves but has never made herself.

Thanks for participating in this month's What's Baking Challenge Amanda and Ange.  I had fun reading about your traditions, and both cookies look delicious!
