It may sound silly but I am really grateful for cookies. When I was a kid, I would help my Great Gram bake lots and lots of cookies for the family. She made these amazing cookies that my family still talks about to this day. My mom would also bake tons of cookies. I am so happy to carry on the tradition. I get my kids involved in helping and we usually make about 10 different kinds of cookies. For about the past 8 years or so, I have also been involved in a Christmas Cookie swap with my friends. What a great way to celebrate the holidays and share a piece of heritage and home with friends and family.
