Christmas Cookies

Did your family or ancestors make Christmas Cookies? How did you help? Did you have a favorite cookie?

UPDATE: boy did these posts make me hungry! And so many great recipes too!

  • For many of us, Spritz cookies are a standard around the holidays.  Gini of Ginisology tells us of the ones her mother from Germany makes.
  • Have you ever heard of a “cookie walk?” I didn’t until I read this great post from Janet of Janet the Researcher.
  • Without a doubt I think the most prolific cookie bakers and blog posters this year are those with Slovak ancestry, like Martin of The Slovak Yankee.

Here is a listing of all Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories posts for today from GeneaBloggers’ member blogs:
