The “festive holiday season” can be stressful. All the cooking, baking, shopping, anticipation … can make it difficult to sit back and remember that the holidays are about family and friends.
I do some things to try and “keep calm” which include preparing stuff in advance (like my husband’s snowball cookies), shopping in October (yes I’m done) and using ingredients like William-Sonoma’s Handmade Peppermint Snow because the snow is so much easier than crushing your own candy canes and for whatever reason, don’t ask me why, hand crushed candy canes are simply not as perfect as this product.
I love the way these cookies came out. They are keeping me calm.
What do you do to stay calm during the holidays?
