This cookie cookbook is as old as me. I have very fond memories of it.
It belonged to my mother. She passed it on to me after I married and started spending time in the kitchen (and enjoying it). And, she used it every year at Christmas time (probably at other times too but I especially remember it at the holidays).
It's loaded with wonderful cookie tips ~ for storing, freezing, mailing. The front cover notes that it includes a bonus section ~ PLUS: COOKIER COOKIES FOR GOODIER GIVING. I love that.
I love the graphics in this book. They take me back to my days of childhood. Don't they look like they belong in a child's book?
I bake recipes from this cookbook each year during the Christmas season. Mom made notes next to the recipes that she used, usually indicating how many batches of each recipe to make - 2, 3, etc. Not sure if duplicate batches were required for gift giving or because of my 3 older brothers. I'll have to ask Mom.
On Saturday I made Coconut Crisps.
The household Quality Assurance Dept. was eager to give them proper testing. They passed with flying colors.
Do you have holiday recipes that have been passed down from family members that you make each year? If so, please share. I'd love to hear your stories.
