What is your favorite Christmas tradition? In my family, it just isn't Christmas without our favorite cookies. My kids love our candy cane cookies made with sugar cookie dough.
We roll out a small ball of red dough and a small ball of plain dough into thin pencil shapes. Then, we twist the two together and form a candy cane shape and bake. If we are feeling lazy, we make the candy cane with plain dough, and after baking, we frost the cookie with white frosting and use red sugar sprinkles to decorate.
My grandson likes the nuts I keep in a bowl on the table. He loves to crack the nut and dig out the meat. We usually have these only around Christmas time, so now it is a tradition, too.
You can start your own traditions, and your family will love them for years to come.
