Advent Calendar - December 8, Christmas Cookies

December 8 – Christmas Cookies
Did your family or ancestors make Christmas Cookies? How did you help? Did you have a favorite cookie?

Everyone seems to love their Christmas cookies.  Except me.  Call me a fuddy-duddy, but I really generally only like chocolate chip cookies, and then only on occasion.  The annual flood of Christmas cookies just doesn't appeal greatly to me.  I might have one or two over the season, but more than that would be very unusual.

I remember making them when I was young.  We did the cutting out and baking, my mother had a set of Chirstmas cookie cutters.  That much was fun, as a kid.  Decorating and frosting them was also good.
