There were a hundred different pictures I wanted to take during the process, little hands pounding dough and gently picking up their cut out cookies, the way the littlest kiddo looked as I looked down on her smile and long eye lashes from my height, their silly impersonations, frosting being licked off of fingers, it was all golden.
Baking cookies and sweets with my mom was a much loved Christmas tradition at our house. We made several different kinds and then delivered platefuls of goodies to our friends and loved ones the week before Christmas. Here are a list of some of my all time favorite Christmas cookies and sweets in no particular order:
1. Peanut Butter Blossoms (the ones with the Hershey kisses on top)
2. Sugar Cookies
4. English Toffee
5. Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
