Baking is one of my favorite things to do but baking Christmas cookies is extra meaningful to me.  I used to spend a few days with my mom in the kitchen before the holidays baking her traditional cookies.  It was always so much fun…and something I looked forward to helping with every year.  Nowadays, I help when I can, but also like to bake a few batches of my own.
