I fully admit that the Christmas Cookie tradition is just not my thing. This is one holiday event that belongs entirely to my husband. In fact, he uses his paternal grandmother's cookie recipe. You should hear the raptures which he and his father go into when discussing this recipe! They are both rather distressed that I don't like them. (Sorry!)
At any rate, the girls LOVE making cookies with their daddy, and I LOVE the fact that they all have a fun activity to do together.
