I'm a day behind schedule but it took me awhile to get in the Christmas cookie baking mood. Today, I'm ready to go - first batch of anise/almond biscotti have completed their first bake. Just have to slice them and toast them in the oven. I'm doing the biscotti first, then the gingerbread men, then cherry winks, mint surprise cookies, peanut butter blossoms and last taralluces.
Every year this activity is a tribute to my Mom who baked cookies every year and sent them to my sister and me without fail. Thanks for the wonderful memories, Mom. A toast to you, Merry Christmas!
