Cookie #Recipe Peppermint Cream Cheese

 One of my favorite smells at Christmas time or really any time is the aroma of cookies baking in the oven. December 18 is National Bake Cookies Day and is a great time to bake up your favorite cookies or try a new recipe. Whichever you choose to do it is a great time to make your house full of sweet smells during the holidays.
