Make sure you follow us on Instagram, where we'll be sharing videos and photos of our cookie decorating session (the good and the bad!). If you want to bring some holiday cheer into your own kitchen, keep reading for three of the recipes we received from our partners at Janine Cifelli Representation. Janine has been sharing recipes from her annual cookie recipe exchange for the past 16 years, so you can trust these are top-notch recipes! We're featuring recipes from Ballyfin in Ireland, Soneva Jani in the Maldives, and Katikies Resorts in Greece. We've converted the measurements and temperatures in our post for our American readers, but we've also included the links to the original recipes.
