I will be making Christmas cookies this year but it won't be the way it used to be. :(
I have four children and for many years, after they became adults, we gathered at the home of the eldest a week or so before Christmas, pooled our ingredients and made huge batches of cookies, candies and quick breads together. The younger kids/grandkids would make a gingerbread house kit while we older ones would bake for 10 hours straight. We'd make 5-6 dozen each of about 10 different kinds of cookies and beds, tables, the mantle piece and every other available space would be used for cooling cookies. I (being the matriarch) and my daughter would assign tasks and direct traffic. After everything was done we would bring out our various containers, bags and tins and split it all up.
I moved right after Christmas last year. I will only be there in spirit this year but it's time for my eldest to start stepping into my shoes and assuming some of those matriarchal duties. I feel like I've trained her well to carry on for me.
So only Christians eat cookies? Haven't heard that one before.
I bet you don't turn down Christmas presents or Christmas bonuses.
No. I'm not a christian.
Typical LJworld poll....
If you guys want to know who makes the flipping cookies, then ask who makes the cookies...
This is another poll where the poll has responses that do not come close to coving all the options when a yes or no response is all that is needed....
I do not make much of anything unless it involves a sause or a smoker so I do not make cookies. But, I eat them in large numbers. I never buy them (yuck) and my wife usually makes them.....
My wife has a client that bakes Christmas cookies. She brings a heaping plate full of unusual tasty cookies to her every year and my waist line is proof they are really good.
It's Christmas; it happens once a year. So...
"Yes, they are a holiday tradition"
"Occasionally when I have the time"
