Great Christmas Cookies

I came across a nice recipe on the “Attachment Mamma” blog. Here’s the description she gives:

A little slice of YUM and something easy and fun to do with toddlers on Christmas: making old-fashioned Christmas sugar cookies. This recipe has been passed down from my late Grandma, Betty Bay to my mom to me.

The cookies she shows in the blog post look like little Santas. Very cool! It’s last minute for 2009, but if you are looking for something fun to do with your toddler, this is a great idea. Keep in mind these are pure sugar/butter/flour so you don’t want to be consuming bus loads of these things … but it is the holidays. Indulge a bit.

Here’s a link to the original post.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

    Thanks so much for sharing this Chris! Funny that you mention the gentle warning about eating solid sugar-butter and flour. The day after Christmas has me reflecting quite a bit on toddlers and sugar and how easily we can succumb to family and societal traditions and set our kids up for sugar addiction early in life and all the emotional and physical risks that come with it. This post on my Grandma's cookies may be the last of its kind on my site. My post today is, “The Big Deal about Holiday Sugar.”
