7 Delicious Christmas Cookies That are Inexpensive to Make

Just a few days till Christmas—how are you holding up? There is so much to buy and do during the holiday season that many of us seem to lose our peace and joy this time of year. That’s why this year I set out to create a better spending plan to get through the holiday season with some sanity (and money) left at the end of the month.

My commitment to save 10% or more on every single holiday item motivated me to search for the most delicious yet inexpensive cookie recipes out there, and here’s what I found.

I’m happy to share the love if you’ll be spending your weekend baking like I will.
