Red & White Yummies!

Every Christmas I bake sugar cookies with frosting for the family continuing the tradition of my sweet Mother-In-Law.  My MIL was amazing.  She loved to cook and bake.  I remember praising her one Christmas just gushing about all the different delicious cookies she had made (over 13 different kinds) to which she replied that wasn't very many as she use to make twice the amount.  Unbelievable!

I'm lucky to make two kinds each Christmas.  I love her Sugar Cookies recipe which was her Mom's.  My brother-in-law complimented me a few Christmas ago by saying mine were as good as his Mom's.  That's the highest praise!  

Read about my Sugar Cookies (here) and (here).  

Candy Cane Marshmallows...how festive!  

Something new...I would like to try making these for Christmas or even Valentine's.

How about you?

Do you have favorite Christmas traditions?

Hiya Sandy,

Love those homemade marshmallows, and yes I want to make a batch of those this year too. I saw such pretty ones make the rounds on the blogs last year, but didn't have time to make them. As for your family sugar cookie recipe...wow, looks great. I'm going to try your recipe this year, as I love cut out cookies. I'm not much for icing them, but maybe I could add sprinkles instead. Thanks for sharing your recipeon your other post.
