Day 10: Favorite Christmas Cookie

Today’s guest is my friend Alexandra Hoover. She is a wife, mother of three incredible kiddos, daughter, friend, bible teacher, and Proverbs 31 devotion writer. And now, here she is with a fun question of the day!

I grew up eating delicious homemade Venezuelan desserts for Christmas. My absolute favorite was Tres Leches cake (translation: three milks cake). This is a sponge cake —in some recipes, a butter cake —soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated, condensed, and heavy cream. Sometimes cinnamon is also in the recipe.

As I grew up, I was also introduced to a few American recipes that I loved as well. They became a sweet obsession. One is soft sugar cookies and the other is gingerbread cookies. I love them fresh out of the oven. I just can’t go without them at Christmas time!

And so, for our question today, tell us what your favorite Christmas cookie is in the comment thread and you will be entered to win my giveaway.

  8. We have many Ukrainian sweets that we love to have any time but especially at Christmas, one of them being Bird’s Milk which is a white mousse with chocolate jello topping and is sooo good. I also love little cookies stuffed with cherries and topped with powdered sugar. My favorite American cookies are probably the peanut butter kiss cookies!
