i mean, today, and every day of my life,
is there anything better?
no wisecracks, aaron clements,
and NO, there is not a single thing better than christmas cookies.
the perfect christmas cookie recipe has to be complicated enough to be an Event.
it has to be Special.
in my family
it also has to be kind of easy
i mean, you'd think we were baking and cookie specialists
but man, oh man, are we not.
for Duane! yay duane!
who baked his face off when he lived at home before landing a job and a wife.
Duane's cookies are always TO DIE FOR
and I DON'T EVER UNDERSTAND WHY.
he makes the kind of cookies that you eat, like,
SEVEN OF THEM
before telling yourself you need to stop
and then, by that point,
you just CAN'T.
you have a HUNGER Duane's cookies
and that hunger is never satisfied.
i remember begging him for months to send me cookies up in cincinnati.
i remain a beggar.
ANyway, I am in love with Christmas Cookies!
There is NOTHING BETTER
and few better ways to spend the holidays at home.
Chester makes an excellent baking partner and conversationalist,
and I dream of whipping up batches of yum with him, soon. :)
