Christmas Cookies

Spiced Cherry Hermit Cookies

Oh, hello. Did you think I died? Does writing personal statements and attempting a personal life count as dying? No?

Well, I didn’t die and my camera is full of photos that I’ve taken of my food and not blogged about. Now that Edward has shown me up by making bagels for New Years, I guess I should finally post at least one of the holiday cookie recipes I made this year. Since 4 out of the 5 cookies I made this year are technically recipes stolen from my mother (hi Mom), I decided to go with these hermit cookies which are adapted from a cookbook gifted to me sophomore year by the very bestest of roommates (hi Sydni). The cookbook is called Big Fat Cookies By Elinor Klivans and the original was called Spiced Raisin Walnut Hermits. As you may be able to tell by the change in title, I made some tweaks to the recipe.
