Every holiday season my mom would bake dozens of her Christmas Cookies. I always wanted to know her secret to the best cookies ever made and hoped to one day inherit the recipe. For Christmas last year she gifted my brother and I a binder filled with the recipes from our childhood including these cookies which she proudly titled “The Best Cookies Ever.” This year I decided to give these cookies a try in hopes that they would turn out just like mom’s. Since this recipe is cherished in our family, I will not be giving it out!
I gathered my ingredients from the store and spaced them out along my rather small kitchen counter. I got the recipe out from the cookbook binder my mother made my brother and I last Christmas. I had Spotify tuned to Holiday Classics and I put my Minnie apron on. I was ready to go! I would text my mom through each step to make sure I was making these exactly how she would! I took notes on the recipe sheet for next year so I wouldn’t forget her tips.
Three hours later…my kitchen floor was covered in flour and sugar but the cookies came out exactly how I wanted them too…just like mom’s! I felt great! It was a goal of mine to successfully bake my mother’s specialty cookies. Happy Holidays!
