My Favorite Christmas Cookies

Spending Christmas with my family in Brooklyn, NY was always a special treat.  The highlight and still very much talked about trip while there, was walking down the block to Mona Lisa's Bakery on 13th ave (yes, we are a very food driven family).  I can still smell the bakery today.  My favorite of all time - the Italian Ribbon Cookie!

This is a perfect blend of almond, raspberry and dark chocolate.  And, it's so festive!  I think of it as heaven in a little bite.  I am in the kitchen today working on these and will be working on others over the weekend.  

Buon Natale!
