If there's ONE Christmas tradition my family could never do without, it's baking Christmas cookies. For years and years growing up, Grandma would make Italian tri-color cookies that we all looked forward to each year. Almond cookies filled with apricot and raspberry preserves and topped with delicious dark chocolate, they're the perfect holiday treat.
As time went on, though, she passed on the task to me. Sure, these cookies take a bit of time -- but they're a family tradition no Christmas celebration would be complete without.
