My favorite part of the holidays is the baking! These easy chocolate crinkles remind me of my childhood and are a delicious treat every Christmas. When I graduated from college I went back home to Connecticut for one week to gather my things and move down to Texas. I packed all the stuff I thought was important like my clothes and my books. Everything was shipped down to Houston and I was excited to be starting a new life.
Christmas Cookie Traditions
When the holidays rolled around I quickly realized that I did not have a single Christmas cookie recipe from my childhood. I never thought to ask my mom to write out her recipes for my favorite Christmas cookies! Not to mention her homemade macaroni and cheese or that delicious tuna casserole she would make. Recipes were not something I ever considered packing!
When you are young, you usually don’t stop to consider things like recipes when you are moving out on your own. It is relatively easy to find recipes online or in cookbooks, right? Well, yes, that is true but they may or may not come out just like your moms! My mom’s easy chocolate crinkles recipe is probably a tad bit different than all the other recipes online, right? Recipes can be fickle things and to make sure your Christmas cookie recipe is just right you may need to go right to the source!
When my kids move out on their own I will definitely make sure to put together a ‘Mom’s Cookbook’ as a housewarming gift! I found some great info online on how to make a cookbook scrapbook that I think looks like fun. Do you have any Christmas cookie recipes that have been handed down to you from your own family? Make Christmas cookie baking a tradition with your own kids. Try your hand at making gingerbread men this week!
