I can't believe Christmas is at the end of the week — I need to get to some holiday baking! One of my favorite cookies to bake and enjoy with my family is krumkakes, which is a Scandinavian cardamom-flavored rolled cookie we make with a special iron. 

Another one of my favorite Christmas treats is something that my mom learned how to make from her grandmother: Hello Dollys. I've seen them in some coffee shops as "magic bars", but it's not the same as when my mom makes them. It starts with a layer of buttery graham cracker crust, then chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts and shredded coconut, topped with an entire can of sweetened condensed milk before baked in the oven. 

Finally, you can't go wrong with sugar cookies. Here's a tray that my friend and I decorated last year!
