Simple and Easy Christmas Cookies

Buttery and Delicious Georgia Tea Cakes

If you’re looking for a simple and easy Christmas Cookie that tastes delicious, too, this is it! 

I know Christmas is right around the corner in my house when I start my Christmas Baking.

Decadent treats are amazing but sometimes, you just want a little something that’s not quite as dense as shortbread but still with a buttery flavor and something that’s not too heavy or sweet.

You want something a little lighter.  If that’s the kind of cookie you’re looking for then Georgia Tea Cakes are the answer.  When I made these the other day my oldest son said it wasn’t what he was expecting but that that was a good thing. He said it wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet and he didn’t feel like he needed to stop with just one.  I like them with coffee, the kids like them with milk and I’m pretty sure Santa would like them as well.
