12 Days of Christmas Fun: Bake It Up

By December 19, 2012

On the eighth day of Christmas,
My grandparents gave to me
Cookies for the baking. . .

Baking cookies with grandchildren is a truly time-honored tradition. My favorite recipes are the traditional ones that I baked with my mom, although gingerbread girls and boys are also lots of fun.

It's easy for long-distance grandparents to share the fun of cookie baking with their grandchildren. While you're in the kitchen mixing up your favorite recipes, mix an extra batch of the dry ingredients, package in an airtight bag, tuck in a copy of the recipe and send off for your family to complete the job. Of course, you could always bake an extra batch and send it to them, but then their house wouldn't be filled with the special aromas that say "Christmas."

What is your favorite holiday cookie? Leave a comment below.
