Well, today, I have not one, but nine cookies to share.Yep, see all that goodness below? It’s a virtual cookie exchange headed up by Honestly Yum with some of my favorite bloggers.

Citrus and Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls

It’s the season for citrus and cranberry, so like many of you, I’ve paired them together in one sweet dessert. The two flavors provide a nice balance to the sweetness of the cinnamon rolls.

Speaking of cinnamon rolls, these are made with Fleischmann’s® Rapid Rise Yeast. Yes, its a bit more work than a non-yeast cinnamon roll variety, but it’s worth it—​the texture is unbeatable—soft and chewy, the way a cinnamon roll is meant to be.

Decorated Christmas Tree Cookies

It’s not often that I do iced cookies. Generally, I don’t have the patience for them, but the one time of year I will go crazy with them is Christmas.

Especially, not when I’m knee-deep in deadlines, tired from sleepless nights with an infant and everything else life demands.
