Barefeet In The Kitchen: Almond Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies. Since I make both almond crescents and thumbprint cookies at XMas, this would be a great way to combine both and satisfy all my family with the one cookie.
This is the Christmas Braid Table Runner from Rose Patchwork Cottage (Judy Gray). Very easy to make and you don't need to use Christmas prints, just greens, reds and creams. Pattern available from their website or shop.
