Making Christmas Cookies with the Family
Posted on Monday, December 23rd, 2013 by Mikayla Bergeron
Last Saturday as part of my family’s Christmas tradition, we spent half a day making my entire family’s favorite Christmas cookies. We made cut out sugar cookies (some sprinkles and some frosted), peanut logs for my older sister, peanut blossoms for my brother, caramels for my step-dad and spritz cookies for myself, We also added into the mix, ting-a-lings and pretzels with the Hershey Kiss on top.
Whenever the whole family gets together there is always plenty of willing hands to help our mother out. She tends to run the show because she knows what each recipe calls for. Of course whenever all of the siblings get together there is also a lot of sibling love, meaning everyone is giving each other a hard time. This definitely is the case for my adopted brother, Spencer, who seems to get a way with much more than he should when picking on my sister and myself. But it’s all in good fun.
After lunch, we continued to put the finishing touches on our sugar cookies and made up a plate for each one of us to take home for the holidays. All in all it was a great day spending time with family and making treats to share.
