Since this is Christmas Memories VIII...it made me think of food (eight...ate...food...I know, it's obviosly late)...well tonight's memory is...
My mom's cookies...while at home she made these every Christmas I think...I can't remember a year without them...they were her Spritz cookies,that she made in various Christmas colors, and Russian Tea Cookies. And she made plenty of them. She'd sometimes make the candy cane ones too. But no Christmas ever went by without spritz cookies and russian tea cookies. They were delicious. And sometimes if my mom had time (which wasn't very often) she'd make here Kuchen. (I think that's how it's spelled)...she'd make a poppyseed and a nut one. I always loved the nut filled one. It was so tasty. Yumm...making myself hungry now. In fact tonight I madea couple more cheesecakes, one for tomorrow's shindig with hubby's father and step mom and that side of the family. These cheesecakes didn't turn out as well I think as the many others I have made...not sure what was up with that. Probably because I was committed to bring them...whenever I'm committed to bring something it's just guarranteed to fail...go figure that one out.
Well got lots to do and a short time to get there.
May the smells and tastes of Christmas fill your senses throughout this coming year.
