As many of you know, I’m participating in a “30 days to create an ebook” personal challenge. It has been fun to pull together a variety of treats for my “Dessert a Day ‘Til Christmas” ebook. The cookie section has been especially fun, because my two sons enjoy helping me to bake them. That is why it was super easy for me to come up with my favorite “magical” Christmas cookie memory on behalf of Cardstore.
It all began with a kiss…
The reason why “kiss cookies” are my favorite new Christmas cookie is because the boys and I had a blast and learned some good lessons along the way. The cookies are a variation of another cookie that we have made many times before. For some unknown (at the moment) reason, the cookies were just not turning out as great as expected. They were good, but not great…so the boys were disappointed. Later, I realized that I had substituted a wrong ingredient, so we went back to the drawing (baking!) board. This time they were perfect. The big smiles/happy looks on my sons’ faces were so happy and my 5-year-old son Sean said something to the effect of “They were worth the wait!” Not only did we end up with tasty cookies but we also learned a sweet lesson in perseverance.
Whether it’s a personalized card or homemade cookies, I really do enjoy sharing the magic of the holiday season with my family, friends and (of course!) you, my readers.
