I have heartfelt memories with my Mom’s Hermit cookies. They are molasses spice cookies. They were a recipe from a thick green Southern cooking book that my parents received as a wedding present in 1943. This was one many pages that were splattered with ingredients. You didn’t need to look at page numbers, just find the right spattered page. We have misplaced the book now, but some of the recipes had been written on cards. I love this cookie’s taste, smell, and the memories of my youth.

My favorite Christmas cookie is a holiday-licious sugar cookie made from my dearly departed aunt’s recipe. It is the perfect combination of slightly sweet and non-greasy butter scrump-deliciousness (no frosting and no added sugar sprinkles also make them great for travel, gift-giving, or people who prefer not to have a sugar high). Plus we decorate them with Christmas colors using food safe paint brushes and an egg-yolk and food coloring wash (applied before baking). The decoration does not add flavor, but it makes each cookie appear like a hand-made, stained-glass, Christmas ornament when you use holiday cookie cutters.

Getting together with my three daughters and Mom/Grandma to bake cookies each holiday season is my favorite holiday thing to do! We bake many varieties, but my all-time favorite are Chocolate Mint Crackle Cookies made with a holiday mint Hershey kiss in the center!!

Russian tea balls or Russian tea cakes (the ones that melt in your mouth!). Yum!

My favorite cookies are Teatime Tassies if someone is making them for me. My favorite cookies to make are peanut butter cookies, the ones with the criss-cross on top. I make them gluten free for my nephew, and they come out great. 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla, 1 egg, and a teaspoon of baking powder. Stir it all up and bake. Yum. Yum!!
