Christmas Cookie Box - Monica Hart via La Famiglia Design


Fast and furious they {the blog posts} came….

From now until Christmas, like you, I’m decking the halls and baking Christmas cookies! 

I’m taking tons  of pretty holiday snapshots to share as I go along…like this

thrifty and fun holiday cookie box! So simple and it’s a cool way

to display your holiday cookies, plus…it makes an #inspired hostess gift!

Okay, this is just a craft store box (Ben Franklin Crafts & Frames)

with dividers,

recycled and cut down from wine box cases! I dressed up the

presentation with colorful wax 

paper, ribbon, crinkle, fresh flowers in florist tubes

& GOLD cupcake liners!

These Swedish gingerbread-like cookies, called Tomten are a family favorite and

a Christmas tradition at our house. Our son and I make these for Santa each & every year.

{He is now in college! Now that’s a longstanding holiday tradition!!}

I made this batch a little early for my holiday segment on KING 5 Morning News!


Here’s a tip! Make extra cookie dough and freeze it, then

bake it off Christmas Eve so that Santa’s cookies & milk are super fresh!

C’mon, the BIG GUY deserves it, right?

I hope you save time to come back and

visit my holiday snapshots!
