Getting in the Christmas Mood

I have been in a little bit of Christmas production, making ornaments and gifts. Yesterday I went shopping for five hours and felt like I had put a dent in the list. 

My daughtMaryer Mary, came over today. First we went to lunch and then we put on some Christmas music and baked a few batches of cookies. One of them was my very favorite, Cherry, Cashew, and White Chocolate Cookies. Here is the recipe. 

I began baking during the Christmas season when I was in junior high school. And it has been a family tradition ever since. When my girls were little we made cut out sugar cookies with icing. The cookie dough recipe came from the instructor of what I call “Park School.” It was an adult education program at Reseda Recreation Center in the San Fernando Valley, where mothers gathered and learned about early childhood education and our children played outside and we took turns watching them. The instructor was a wonderful woman, who guided us with much wisdom. I wish I could remember her name.

Anyway, Mary and I had a great time and were amazed how quickly it went with two sets of hands.
