One of my favorite Christmas traditions as I kid was making Christmas cookies and candies with my Mom. Every year I've looked forward to our annual all day cookie bake off. For the last two years though I've made these cookies at my home since I wasn't able to be at my Mom's for cookie day. I love baking, I love using my Great Grandma's recipe, and taking the time to frost each one as if it's a labor of love & sugar!
This morning, I got up at 8 am and started baking. I spent the whole day baking, frosting and candy making. Here's a little sneak peak of my Christmas cookie tale through pictures.
Grandma would be proud!
