Here's the thing about Christmas and cookies... Christmas traditions may vary wildly from family to family, but generally, cookies are involved. 🍪🎄These are a few of the Christmas cookies making an appearance at our home this year, some old, some new, all guaranteed to inject a little sweetness into your week.

There are a lot of different ways to make lemon tarts, and I’m a fan of most of them because I LOVE lemon desserts. Baked lemon tarts usually include cream, creating a custard consistency. Delicious. I’ve also made lemon tarts with filling similar to my favorite lemon bars. Also, delicious.
.
These mini Lemon Tarts are prepared with a sabayon method, giving them a fluffy, light consistency that’s somewhere between pudding and whipped cream.

I am totally in love with these mini coconut cakes. They remind me of tiny wedding cakes. Also, the coconut cake and coconut maple buttercream are scrumptious. Like, lick your plate clean kind of delicious.

This recipe makes six 4-inch cakes that I love to slice into 4 little slices. Every you serve them to is probably going to eat more than one tiny slice. Part of the fun of making mini desserts is eating more than one with no regrets.

This is what your kitchen looks like if you spend the morning taking pictures of 10 different Christmas cookies. And now.... everyone we see today is getting a plate of cookies. Recipes coming your way next week, after I recover from this sugar high.

If you make these, you must speak in a French accent and pretend to be somewhere in Paris drinking espresso and nibbling on cookies while you savor a melt-in-your-mouth delicious little dish of Eggnog Pots de Creme. {Do they even have eggnog in Paris? Whatever. Not the point.}

I am totally in love with these little two bite chocolate peppermint cupcakes. Rich chocolate cake covered in peppermint spiked cream cheese buttercream with a fun candy cane swirl is what Christmas tastes like.

I love the portion options of mini loaves. An entire mini-loaf is similar in size to a muffin or a cupcake, while a slice of a mini loaf is two or three bites. Options for when you want the whole thing or when you just want a taste.
.
But honestly, the option I almost always choose with these Lemon Ricotta Olive Oil loves is the whole damn thing. They are impossibly moist and tender, with a bright lemon flavor and sweet-tart lemon glaze. And, I suppose it's possible to eat just a slice... but, why would you want to?

I LOVE it when readers request recipes. First of all, it’s a lovely compliment when someone searches the blog for a recipe they can’t find and then, rather than go search for it elsewhere, reaches out to ask me for it directly. Second, it’s the perfect excuse to head to the kitchen and get busy working on a new recipe.
.
It’s not that I need someone to give me an excuse to work out a recipe. If that was the case, this would be a very small blog. It’s more that it offers a more meaningful reason to bake than just because I feel like it. Kind of like the difference between baking a birthday cake for someone you love and baking a cake just because cake sounds good. Both are great reasons to bake cake. But, baking a cake for someone you love holds more meaning.
.
So, that’s why I baked this cake. And it's one of my favorite cakes ever.

Ok. Even though these tasty little cookies are bursting with Christmas spices, I make them year round. But, they are especially welcome this time of year because not only do they taste like Christmas, they make the whole house smell like Christmas.
