Oh goodness, it’s only 2 weeks until Christmas! Christmas is my favorite holiday. The decorations, the movies, the music, and all the cookies! So many holiday cookies! When I was younger, my grandmother would send all of her children a tin of homemade cookies with the Christmas presents. We looked forward to this parcel every December.
Grandma would make oatmeal cookies, shortbread cookies with jam in the center, chocolate chip cookies, pinwheels, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies… so many cookies. My Grandmother passed away over 10 years ago, and this once a year tradition passed away with her. Which, honestly breaks my heart. So during the holidays I tend to bake only cookies and take a lot of joy sharing them with my friends and family.
Favorite Holiday Song: Judy Garland Riding A Sleigh, Judy Garland Singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Favorite Holiday Movies: A Christmas Story and It’s A Wonderful Life are two of our favorite vintage Christmas movies we like to watch while wrapping presents or drinking hot cocoa and freshly baked cookies.
