…and finally a full immersion into Christmas decor with a stop at Kraynak’s Garden Center to walk through their “Santa’s Christmas Land,”

“From September 10th thru December 31st, Imagine a world of make-believe with twinkling lights, glittering trees, and a magical array of life-like characters.”Santa’s Christmas Land” is a 300-foot, indoor starlight avenue of uniquely designed artificial Christmas trees.

So after returning home and catching up on the daily chores, I turned to today’s cookie, Ranger Cookies. This recipe is from a friend and after enjoying her yummy cookies, I knew it was a recipe that would be a hit at our house. Sadly I had not yet made a batch myself, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to shake the recipe card loose from it’s book and put it to the test.
