Yes, I know this is not a picture of a cookie. It's a gift for you, my blog buddies.
GRANDMA'S SPICE COOKIES
Delectable baking aromas are an unmistakable sign that Christmas is near. I love to bake year round. I'm always excited to try something new, but at Christmas I get nostalgic and fall back on the old reliable recipes that have become traditions.
A favorite in our family is Grandma Violet's Cookies, named after my husband's grandmother who always had a batch to pull from the freezer when we stopped by. On my yellowed index card, in Grandma Violet's distinctive handwriting, she called them Aunt Myra's Cookies. I think someday my grandchildren will call them Bama's Cookies, since it's a special treat each time I make them for the family. Whatever they're called, they don't last long! I always bake a double batch and have been known to take heart-shaped variations to booksignings on Valentine's Day as a treat for my special readers.
The recipe is included in A Western Winter Wonderland where Marvel whips up a batch with her young guests.
You know, there are a couple things I've been meaning to mention, because I just don't think you're paying attention. Remember a lo-o-o-ong time ago, I collected all of your pet names? How many of you recognized your pet names used in The Preacher's Daughter this summer? That was just for you, my blogger lovelies.
And -- remember the contest to name the hero for the Christmas novella? He is none other than SETH PAXTON, the hero of Christmas Day Family in A Western Winter Wonderland - named by WDMCuz.
