Dreidel Hanukkah Gingerbread Cookies

Every year the holidays spring quickly on me.  This year I’m starting my baking and filming early as next week I have jury duty and I really don’t know how my schedule will be.  Hanukkah is early this year so I’ll begin with these cute Dreidel Cookies.

I always use my favorite Gingerbread recipe.

Trader Joe’s Holiday Haul

My favorite part of the Christmas season are the cookies, candy and desserts.  That’s an unusual thing to say coming from me, the fitness freak.  But as I always say, consumed in moderation and combined with healthy meals and physical activity, I can still enjoy them.

This afternoon I went to Trader Joe’s to stock up on my favorite holiday treats.  And they’re everyone else’s favorites too because they were selling quickly.
