christmas cookie?

When I think of Christmas, I think cookies. Every year, since I can remember, Christmas has always started with the cookie. My Grandmother would host cookie baking day for my sister and I, which happened to be my favorite day of winter break.

My Grandma’s sugar cookie must always be made. I’m pretty sure these cookies are responsible for my obsession with baking:

I did need to save time for a few homemade gifts. With six siblings (two brothers, one sister – all married), I decided to keep things simple with hand-crafted goods.

Pumpkin bread and banana bread (baking as we speak):

After a week of preparing and baking, I’m whooped. Ready to relax and enjoy the holiday with my family and friends.
happy eats to all!
