I have mentioned before that I don't have a large repertoire of "my" recipes because I like to experiment a lot,
although this has changed slightly. This quest became more important
when I neared motherhood as cooking for others is one way I show love and also food is a tangible way to transport you home or somewhere pleasant throughout life.
I want those memories for Hen and one area that I need to focus are Christmas cookies, mostly because this is still a fond memory that
I have with my grandma.
She had her staples, but also tried new recipes that she would find. Each type was placed in a special round
Christmas tin and I would peck away at them for my after school snacks well before the holiday arrived.
We have someone in our family that holds the place of "cookie master," so I have lazily counted on those as our cookies for the season, but as Henry gets older I need to figure out some of
my own staples.
I will admit, I do not like making cutouts, which seem to be the most kid-friendly. If I am making multiple cookie recipes, I want some (if not all) to be easy and this latest creation is a contender because
it has few ingredients and requires nothing fussy. I have been craving German Chocolate cake, but could not justify making one because no one in this house needs that temptation, so this recipe was a nice consolation.
