My First Batch of Cookies.

Well, I’m a little late, but managed to bake my first batch of cookies yesterday.

I used a recipe that I cut out of a C and H box of sugar many years ago and you can tell by the stains on the card that it was used many times.

These little delights are very easy and you don’t need very many ingredients, although I did add one additional ingredient to make it my own.

I added a 1/2 tsp. of Abuelita granulated Mexican chocolate mix to the flour mixture and 1/2 tsp. of the chocolate mix to the sugar and cinnamon mixture just to give it a Β little punch of extra flavor.

Although the recipe calls for 10 minutes of bake time, you might want to try 9 min. Β The 10 minutes gave my cookies a toasted bottom.

These would be good with some Canela ( a Mexian drink made from cinnamon sticks.)

Christmas Cookies. πŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺ

Many years ago when our kids were youngsters, I did a lot of baking at Christmas time.

I would start on December 1st Β and continue baking until the 23rd. Β My plan was to bake a batch of cookies every day and then freeze them.

All our relatives would receive a plate of cookies for the holidays. Β They all enjoyed the goodies and I think they actually looked forward to receiving them.

Our son confessed that he would sneak into the freezer and take a few of his favorites Β out to eat secretly.

Our oldest daughter has taken over now and bakes as much as she can. Β This year, I feel like baking and plan on taking a few of Β my favorite cook books out to use.

I’ll be posting some favorite recipes and hope that some of you will try them out.
