So, if you are a regular Starbucks fan (as I am) then you know that with the holiday season comes not only Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but also the amazing delectable Cranberry Bliss Bars. Mhmm those things are what I live for around this time of year! Well that, and the snow, which never seems to want to fall where I live. Bummer!! At least the weather is cold enough to sit by the fire and drink Hot Chocolate!
Also, this time of year is when my Culinary Class starts selling cookbooks. And this year they are completely new design with new recipes that have been collected from all culinary educated throughout the entire United States. One of the books is about entrees appetizers, with a few desserts; while the other one is all about the holidays and includes both baking and crafts in it. Flipping through both of the books, I finally found a recipe called "Cranberry Hollybrook" in the holidays cookbook. I have no idea what a hollybrook is, but after making and tasting these cookies, I realize it is just a Cranberry Bliss Bar disguised as a cookie! A bonus to these cookies is the holiday colors...as well as the wonderful smells that will fill your house!
