I can't believe it's already time for the 12 weeks of Christmas blog hop. But here it is and my first post are these wonderful, buttery, tender Ribbon Icebox Cookies!
I participated in the blog hop last year and had so much fun I decided to do it again. I found lots of great new recipes for my cookie tray. The host is Meal Planning Magic. Check it out!

These cookies have three layers of flavor. The first is the cherry, then chocolate, and finally the poppy seed. They are like a shortbread cookie, rich and buttery. Yum!

 I think the colors are very festive and just perfect for the holidays!
