Plated + Served: On The Fourth Day of Christmas…


My true love had a bunch of returns to make at the mall, so I decided to spread the holiday spirit and bake Calling Birds Cookies (or Colly Birds if you want to get technical).

The twins next door are ill and can’t play in the newly fallen snow, so I made them each a little “care package” of Four Calling Birds Cookies and threw in some frosting and sprinkles for decorating.

Confession: I used a package mix.

Mama tries to make the week between Christmas and New Years as simple as possible. And baking these cookies was pretty simple.

I mean, after all, I’ve gotta rest up for New Year’s Eve!
