What’s Cooking With The Elves:Oatmeal Cranberry Coconut Cookies

This year, I have two more helpers this holiday season. Aren’t they adorable? You all know I’m a thrifty shopper and on one of my usual stops to the thrift store, this cute little pair caught my eye. I had to give them a home.  This holiday season, I’ve decided to change much of my holiday decor to a Santa’s Workshop theme. It’s still a work in progress but the kids seem already excited about Christmas with the decorations I’ve put up so far.

What’s Cooking With The Elves?

The elves were already getting ahead start on Christmas cookie baking last night. This cookie recipe was inspired by my Sweet Apple Oatmeal and Coconut Cookies .
