If you like holiday sweets and treats and supporting a good cause, then today’s post is for you!

It’s always fun to do blogger sweepstakes and virtual recipe exchanges, and this one is no different. For The Sweetest Season 2017, dozens of bloggers are sharing brand new, holiday-inspired cookie recipes and encouraging donations to the Cookies for Kids’ charity.


If you’ve been a think fruitful reader for a bit, then you know that I love a good shortbread. They’re buttery, not too sweet and can be jazzed up easily with a special extract or topping.

And today’s recipe takes that to whole new, holiday festive level.
