A Tradition To Hand Down For Generations

Christmas Cookie Tradition

Traditions. Many of us have family traditions that we continue to carry on (or at the very least think about with fondness). Every year growing up, we would make this fabulous cookies – the recipe came out of a magazine when I was very young. The joy of decorating these cookies was a tradition that we looked forward to as much as Santa.

My parents would bake the cookies. My dad would get the frosting ready to go – scoop it into plastic freezer bags, snip off the end and use it like a pastry bag. We usually had red, green, blue and white frosting. Let me tell you, the effort that goes into these cookies is worth every second. The actual cookie is DIVINE, but paired with this frosting – (eyes roll back in head emoji inserted here). WOW! It’s a flavor explosion! As an adult, if learned it can only be made better with a cup of coffee, although a small glass of milk is still a treat!

The cookies turn out like works of art. Whether you’re neat 🙋‍♀️ or sloppy – they’ll come out beautifully. Fred’s have a lot of frosting, ha ha… I remember when my mom would decorate them, hers had just a tiny bit, so no one ate those, ha ha. Good memories.
