My Favorite Holiday Tradition: Baking Holiday Cookies

 

Trimming the tree and decorating the house while we listen to Christmas music are the first traditions that come to mind, but my favorite would have to be baking cookies.

Each year the recipes might get switched around a little, but some continue to make an appearance every year.

Everyone has their favorites, so I ask each family member what cookie they HAVE to have that year, then we go thru our recipes to see if we’ve forgotten any must haves, and I usually give one new recipe a try.

Baking cookies is a tradition I shared with my mom while growing up, and have continued to do so with my girls. I hope to have grandchildren some day to bake cookies with and carry on the tradition for another generation.
