Day 15: I Sure Do Love Those Christmas Cookies

Yes, the above line is from the George Strait song, “Christmas Cookies”. I already told you it was on my playlist for the holidays. I am not sure if I mentioned in one of my previous posts, but I am Christmas Queen in my house, followed somewhat closely by my sister. So I make the cookies every year. It is lots of measuring, rolling and cutting, and I am always blasting that George Strait song while I’m at work. In my family, we make Mexican Wedding cookies, and crispy sugar cookies; both recipes have been in my family for decades. I get plenty of gingerbread elsewhere.
