Good morning to you-Baking is a MUST this time of year in our house! Family tradition-Real issue is, “which ones do I make “Orange cookies is such a favorite, my sugar cookies are a favorite too. The recipe goes clear back to my great grandma. When our daughter got married this year, her shower included to bring a recipe ,that would be the one- anxious for hr to make them! We made caramel corn yesterday, buckeye bark, and a new one I tried was “chex this out”. It is so simple-flavorful and easy.(recipe below)
I just love to smell the house up with all these wonderful treats, reminds me of my grandmas house. She would cook non stop for weeks ,Place a variety of cookies in a shirt box .My grandpa would drive her to deliver them to friends ,neighbors or to people who would purchase them. We could not wait to see what would be in our box. What a treat! I tend to do the same for our friends & Family. However I don’t come close to what she made or to the amount of goodness! To be honest not sure how she did it ! Sure glad she did!
The treats are wrapped-hot cocoa is made-few cookies left. I will make delivery to the church-we pass them out to the workers on Christmas Eve.My friends giggle when I tell them I leave a few cookies in the mail box-my grandpa was a mail carrier for over 30 yrs. I remember how people did so much for him. Our friends & family will take home a little treat as well! I wish you happy baking & have fun with it ! Pull those recipes out-or find some new ones. Making memories is the best!
