Lots of options here, make the cookies any size you want by adjusting the diameter of the dough log, and how thick you slice the cookies

Southern Christmas – Leiper’s Fork & Franklin, Tennessee

msshe:

Just sharing. Not too far away for a day trip.

A rustic, small-town Christmas in Tennessee consists of flannel shirts, cozy layers and lots of s’mores.  Christmas carols strum on a guitar and crisp, clear winter nights top it all off.
