We love to bake this time of year. Some of the cookies I make now with my children I used to make with my own mom growing up. Over the years I have been part of a variety of cookie exchanges, a great way to sample new recipes and swap holiday traditions.
Some of my favorites from my childhood:
– Kris Kringle cut-out cookies (recipe)
– Crescent cookies filled with a dab of strawberry jam
– Snickerdoodles (recipe)
I also love making Crescent Moon cookies dipped in chocolate and Gingerbread boy and girl cookies (pictured, recipe form theÂ Joy of Cooking)
