When we do our Christmas baking, we like to try new cookies each year.
Some, even though really good, are made only that one year
Others get made very year,
While still others are made, forgotten and a few years later return
Except . . .
Every year we make batches of cutout cookies.
Different shapes and different decorations
But the first batch is always cut with the Christmas tree cutter
And sprinkled with green sugar
Today, we were also busy
For we were working on this!
When we finish, we light a fire in the fireplace,
turn out the overhead lights
Play Christmas carols
and have a mug of eggnog
And the very first batch of Christmas tree cutout cookies.
We admire our tree
Declaring it the prettiest ever.
(Every year, it always is the prettiest ever)
As we much cookies and sip eggnog.
Now this is the way that Christmas is supposed to be celebrated! I can almost taste that cookie. Merry Christmas! Cherry Kay
It would seem you have seasonal traditions that sound very cozy. I've not done any baking this year other than tea loves and scones which are usually found in the kitchen any time of year.
Tradition I started with my Grandmother and Mother..continues on 50 years later, love making cut out sugar cookies.
Love the tradition of cooking baking, decorating the tree, munching cookies and sipping eggnog!!! It IS the most beautiful tree, dear friend!!! I agree, totally!
Love the Christmas baking! Or at least the Christmas cookie eating! It's one of my favourite parts of the holiday. Your green sugar-coated tree cookies look delicious. xoxo
Looks and sounds wonderful!! Have a cookie for me.
