When I was young, my mom would bake many different kinds of cookies for our Christmas Open House. Pecan sandies, pressed cookies decorated with colored sugar and gingerbread boys with red hots and icing.
One of my activities with my boys after they get out of school for the holiday will be decorating sugar cookies. I doubt they’ll look as good as these, but half the fun is just being in the kitchen together with those sweet and buttery smells wafting all around.
So, whether you have a cookie swap to attend, need to drop off something for the neighbors or just want some ideas of what you can do at home, here are some of my favorites!
Do you have a favorite family recipe? I’d love to know!
Here’s to a sweet week!
