Are you all set for the holidays? Are you planning to travel, or will you have company at your house? I can't wait for all of our family to gather at our house on Christmas Eve Day. We'll have our big dinner at noon, to celebrate our son's birthday (yes--he was a Christmas Eve baby!) and then have a lighter, more Scandinavian supper in the evening before going to church. And on Christmas Day, we'll have another dinner for other relatives, while our children enjoy the day with their in-laws. I would love to hear about your traditional meal at Christmas!
I had a good start on the Christmas cookies, but then we managed to eat them all. My husband is a Minnesota Norwegian who loves his coffee and sweets, and I just plain love cookies, so neither of us can be trusted with cookies in the house. :)
These are my favorite rolled-out cookies. I've been making them for decades, now, and the dough is wonderful because you can repeatedly re-work it and it still stays soft and pliable. Perfect for those afternoons making cookies with little helpers! I won't take up space here, but if you'd like the recipe, it's in a current post over at: www.facebook.com/roxanne.rustand.author
Wishing you all a blessed and joyful Christmas season--surrounded by the love of family and the celebration of the true reason for the season!
