‘Tis the season

‘Tis the season to cuddle in a cozy kitchen with those you love.

To build on family traditions and create sweet memories.

We’ve all got that sweet treat that with just one bite takes us back in time.  For me, it’s “Flower Cookies”, otherwise known as butter cookies or spritz cookies.  It doesn’t matter what shape they’re made in (hearts, Christmas trees, stars) we still call them “flower cookies”.   They’re made for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, college packages (back in the day) or  just because.  And, with just one bite, you’re reminded that Mom loves you to pieces.

Wishing you nothing but fabulous treats and sweet moments with family and friends this December!
