The only cookies I remember in the house during the Christmas holidays were sugar cookies. Mom would make the dough and my brother and I would help cut them out and decorate them. Mom had the biggest assortment of cookie cutters. She had metal cookie cutters, red plastic cookie cutters and also used a glass to cut out rounds from the dough. My brother and I decorated the cookies with colored sugars. My favorite shape was the Christmas trees. Mom would let my brother and I help decorate
My husband's Grandma Eva made cookie tins for everyone in the family. Each tin held many different types of cookies. Just last night I made the corn flake wreathes with the red hots that she made. I am trying to remember the other types of cookies she included in the tin so I can make cookie tins for the family this year. I thought it would be nice for all of us to reinstate the tradition.
