My Grandmother’s Holiday Cookies By Charron-Tae Barnes

Tuesday December 27, 2005

Ooooh! I remember making and baking holiday cookies with my grandmother. 

She would prepare the cookie dough, consisting of sugar, but ter, flour, 

baking powder and a splash of vanilla and an egg. 

Often times I would sneak some dough. 

My grandmother swears against me eating the cookie dough. 

I’d do it anyway! 

My job was to get the cookie cut ters. 

I’d bring them to my grandmother. 

She would shake sprinkles on the cookies. 

My grandmother was great at demonstrating. 

I became good at imitating. 

I believe the making holiday cook ies brings joy, then, now and always!
