Chocolate goodiesMake your friends and family feel special this year when you serve freshly baked Christmas cookies and other delectable treats made right at home. The best memories come from the good times in life. Our fondest childhood memories generally are of visits to our Grandparents’ house at Christmas time, more specifically Grandma’s cookie table piled high with dozens of different varieties. Baking Christmas cookies yourself can be a pleasant way of surprising visitors to your home and a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season.
