When my brother and I were growing up, we would help my mother make desserts for the holidays. She would dig out her favorite holiday recipes and we would bake dozens of sugar cookies with sprinkles, homemade fudge, Peanut Butter And Butterscotch Rice Krispies Treats, and milk chocolate marshmallow treats called Church Windows. It was the one time of year when a silly contraption known as the Cookie Shooter came out of the pantry.
It was always an afternoon filled with laughter, love, holiday music featuring Gene Autry on the record player, and mugs of hot cider with cinnamon. Each year, the memory of this tradition brings me back to my parent’s kitchen and fills my heart with warmth.
Today, I invite you to share a favorite recipe that fills your family with cheer, year after year.
