DECEMBER 8 - CHRISTMAS COOKIES
Did you family or ancestors make Christmas Cookies? How did you help? Did you have a favorite cookie?
As far as I know, my ancestors didn't go all out and bake regularly for Christmas. However, Mother did on occasion make whatever kind of drop cookie [does not require rolling out or cutting!] cookie she could think of during the holidays. [You'd have to know my Mother.... she was never very good in the kitchen... and I say that very lovingly!] And Mother usually preferred kitchen work on her own... not sharing the duty with us. As we got a bit older, she would totally relinquish any kitchen duties to my sister and I, and we did bake some kind of cookie every year.
The one cookie I never made that I truly loved.... Gingerbread men! And I do mean REAL gingerbread!!! The kind that leaves a bit of a tingle on the pallett! All decorated up with a smile on their face and buttons down the front! THOSE were MY favorites! [Still are!]
