Countdown to Christmas - Day 5 (Make 2 Batches of Cookies)

Today's activity was to make two different types of Christmas cookies. The first one was a coconut macaroon. Being that called for sweetened condensed milk, I had to modify the recipe for Sophia. Made homemade sweetened condensed milk that was dairy-free.

The other cookie is a shortbread with peppermint icing and crushed peppermint sticks. We have made this recipe for the past few years now.

The girls enjoyed making the cookies this morning before heading off to Sophia's first piano recital. She played two songs during the hour-long recital. Here she is playing one of her pieces:
