Last week I had several of the grand kids over and we made 4 batches of cookies to bring to two of our local sheriff’s departments and to several of our neighbors as well. This is something we try to do every year at Christmas. The holidays are a great time to say “thank you” to those who serve us in our community. A simple gesture of appreciation is a blessing to them and also teaches our children about thinking of others.
Here’s what we made this year:
- Our traditional sugar cookies (find the recipe, below, and in Homemade with Love) using our nativity cookie cutters. (The kids had fun decorating them with colored sugars and sprinkles. This year Anne had the idea of using powdered sugar to roll them out on instead of flour. Great idea! It worked really well.)
- Three chip chocolate chip cookies
- Peanut Butter Blossom (from Homemade with Love)
- Oatmeal M &M Cookies
