Winter is upon us, and with that first burst of cold weather comes something magical — the holiday season!
At SRPM, we love the holiday season and all that it represents. This year for our holiday party, we volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. Giving back to the community is important to us, and we love the idea of making sure hungry kids have the nutrition they need. Of course, we took plenty of pictures so keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details!
In honor of the holiday season, we thought we’d share one of our favorite holiday cookie recipes with you so you can share it with your friends and family! We’d love to see some of your family’s favorites as well, so please send them our way if you’re so inclined. Trust us, these treats will be a hit at any holiday party!
