Today was Christmas cookie baking day at Linderhof.
Cookies for tea
Cookies for gifts for our neighbors
Cookies for friends
Cookies for our "Sip and See" on Christmas afternoon
Doughs made and chilled
Let the baking begin!
Dried Cherry Brown Sugar Shortbread Stars
The cookie of many names:
Mexican Wedding Cookies
Swedish Tea Cakes
Russian Tea Cakes
A ginger cookie loaded with dried currants and full of spices
When it was baking it "smelled like Christmas"
A simple coffee cookie
That looks so festive and Christmasy
And I do what my mother did with the cookies
Store them in tins
Most from Christmas befores fruitcakes
Separated with paper doilies
because they're round!
They're all good keepers and they look so pretty in the tins!
Cookies for friends --
Christmas is the season of sharing!
But . . .
We did save a few for us!
It's Sunday and there is nothing more seasonal than Christmas Cookies -- I'm joining TheTablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
