After thanksgiving we would start to make cookies.   We had an assortment and there were none that would not be eaten.  The variety included Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Thumbprints, Sugar Cookies, Brown Sugar Cookies, Seven Layer Bars, Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies and many more.    My very best and favorite cook book is the  BETTY CROCKER COOKY BOOK  This book has never failed.

After I got married I started to make the cookies and would freeze them in batches, till one day I discovered that they were disappearing mysteriously from the freezer.   Since we had no children at that time I know who to question about  that mystery.

What I would then do was to pack two Rubbermaid containers with lids and give them to both parents.  My in laws on Christmas Eve and my parents on Christmas Day. 

On Christmas Eve we would have cold cuts sandwiches, a salad or two and cookies.   On Christmas Dinner it would be a repeat of Thanksgiving with a turkey and all the trimmings.

  1. That is the very book that we (and by "we" I mean my Dad) use!! You are right - it never fails. He's had that book for at least 30 year.
