Ever since I can remember, part of my family’s Christmas tradition has been to make sugar cookies. These are not just any sugar cookies, but rather my mom’s special recipe cookies, topped off with decorations that make each one unique. Now that I’m a father, I love watching my children decorate their own cookies during our family Christmas get together. Typically, Jack displays his little piece of culinary art with great pride while McLaine gobbles hers and anyone else’s she gets her hands on within a split second (she’s a lot like her dad!).
