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 Β and continue baking until the 23rd. Β My plan was to bake a batch of cookies every day and then freeze them.

cokie cookbook

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.
