10 Days before Christmas...

Remember the memories? Well, this has finally happened:
They were not the best cookies, yet we managed
to polish them off with no problem at all...
So, I did what any nostalgic person in this generation of my Italian-American family who has the recipe on hand would do, and I made some of these:
I know that Grampa used a metal cookie pan, but
I love my baking stones!
...and now I have completed the circle of cookie life!
I'm nothing if not nostalgic when it comes to food...
I am generally a pretty content grown-up. But on the inside, 10 days before Christmas 2012, I am 10 years old and sitting at my Grandparents' table, having a cookie. Life is good!

Are you making new memories this December?


  1. I am currently baking the ready-to-pop-in-the-oven cookies with little pictures of reindeer and Christmas trees on them. I'm a lazy baker this year. But I will have 8 dozen cookies for the church cookie swap tomorrow and the kiddies will like them!

    1. Maybe lazy is your new tradition? haha! The kids love all cookies, don't they? Yay!

  2. Yummy!!! I've got to get started on my baking!
