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

c & h sugar cookbook


I would start on December 1st  and continue baking until the 23rd.  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.  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  out to eat secretly.

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

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

It’s still a little early for baking but I’m getting myself ready for sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, Mexican wedding cookies, chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies, chocolate crinkles, gingerbread cookies…………..
