The holidays are heavenly for those born with a sweet tooth, and Santa’s been capitalizing on the Christmas cookie season for decades.
Whether you’re expressing gratitude or simply enjoying the fun of holiday baking, here are some handy tools to make your baking even more fun.
According to the History Channel, Americans adopted the cookies-and-milk Christmas tradition amid the Great Depression in the 1930s. Parents thought this practice would teach children how to be thankful and truly appreciate their gifts, but these days kids and adults alike use the tradition as an excuse to host cookie exchanges and rev up our sweets intake.
Cookies have been part of festive holiday rituals long before Christmas to mark significant occasions. The history of Christmas cookies can be traced back to recipes from Medieval Europe.
When you’re craving a cookie from your favorite bakery, but it’s snowing and 4 degrees outside, crank up the oven and mixer.
December has arrived and like every year the cookie baking season has begun. Have fun!
