Christmas Cookies To Make And Gift!


Check out Christmas Cookies To Make And Gift

by Sarah Minnesota Mama at Foodie.com

When I was younger my Mom and I would bake dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies, of all kinds, and create pretty Christmas cookie platters and deliver them to all of our family and friends. Not only did everyone look forward to receiving our famous cookie plates each year, but we always looked forward to visiting with loved ones while we delivered the pretty plates of cookies. We often didn’t get to sit and visit throughout the year and our cookie delivery tradition was the one time we could sit and visit with loved ones we rarely saw otherwise. It’s something that still sticks in my mind today.
