Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Kahlua Lace Sandwich Cookies

Following_RecipeSMALLER   It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancywhich today is KAHLUA LACE SANDWICH COOKIES!

I start thinking about Christmas over the Thanksgiving weekend — we usually start setting up our decorations — so it’s appropriate to start thinking about holiday baking!  Kahlua Lace Sandwich Cookies are great to make that party cookie tray look and taste festive. They’re also extra-special for that gift basket you share with your friends and neighbors!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
