Welcome to the kickoff of our holiday baking series! I absolutely adore Christmas. It is the one holiday that I will unabashedly decorate my house for, drag my family to holiday events around town, and bake enough cookies to feed an army. I created a cookie this year just for my daughter, Thora, who loves all things pink and strawberry flavored. I am not a fan of food coloring, so I am always looking for creative ways to add color to her cookies. Inspiration hit when I was tossing a couple bags of freeze-dried strawberries into the grocery cart.
