    There is no way I can guess which one you choose to make, but I’m betting you picked more than one of these! Cookie exchanges are the best <3

    I’m obsessed with the old vintage look of the pictures as much as I am with the cookies. xoxo

    If I were in your office I’d be voting for the brown butter shortbreads. And now I’m curious, which cookies were the chosen??
