December 8 - Christmas Cookies Did your family or ancestors make Christmas Cookies? How did you help? Did you have a favorite cookie?
Boy did we make cookies in our family. My mom and aunts love sweets and boy can they bake. Each of my aunts had a cookie specialty and they would make large pretzel can full of different cookies. My mom liked to make oatmeal cookies with dates of figs. I remember that she cut slices of apples to keep them moist.
I do not remember making Christmas cookies. That was mom’s job and she made them while we were at school. We lived in Norwood and a lady opened up a cookie shop just down the street from us. Miss’s Alice’s Cookies became the one stop shop for my dad to get cookies. We all had our favorites. Mine were any cookies that were buried in powered sugar, but I guess the favorite was an almond cookie.
