Neapolitan Cookies

Every year at Christmas there is a ton of cooking preparation. It feels like we cook and bake a whole week just for one day!

Obviously since Joe and John are cooking all the time, the family loves food! Every year we make about 4 or 5 different homemade cookies for Christmas. Not just a dozen of each, more like 3 or 4 dozen of each!

Today John and Joe, along with their favorite daughters, are going to show us how to make Neapolitan Cookies, one of the cookies we make for Christmas every year and it's the only time we make them so we are excited!

The recipe for these cookies is available below the video!
