My sister and I decorating the sugar cookies. (I'm the one wearing glasses.)
Mom is the official taste tester. (Couldn't keep her out of the cookie dough.)
Mom's famous coconut macaroons.
Don't they look all yummy and colorful?
Every year our family has a tradition of getting together and baking Christmas cookies. My sister (Andrea) and my Mom (Judy) and myself pick a weekend day in the beginning of December and we bake all day. We each make 4 or 5 different kinds of cookies and then bundle them all up in cookie tins to give away to people we know. (People like our mailman, hairstylist, nail tech. people at work, etc.) This set of pictures is actually from 2005 and it was the one year we went to my sisters cabin to bake the cookies over a three day weekend. Much slower paced and easier on our backs and feet but a pain to drag all that stuff up north. We currently do it at my house since we renovated our kitchen and have 2 ovens to bake in. I promise to take pictures of todays baking frenzy to post here tomorrow.
