    My family did Christmas cookies maybe one year and it was fun to decorate them. We did a lot of healthy eating growing up, so the traditional cookie making/baking that people do around the holidays never became a tradition for us. I'm not a big cookie person anyway (give me cake any day!).

    But I like this thread- I like seeing the old recipes. We have similar looking ones and I like to just look at them because they give me a nostalgic, cozy feeling.

    I have a couple Christmas books that happen to have older recipes in them for Christmas dinner, etc and I recently decided I wanted to try some of them out and see if I would care for any of them. This has just reminded me.

    Thanks for this thread snowbell

    Wow, is that your gramma's handwriting? Love how original it is, on a piece of paper. Don't see that much these days.
    Anyway, I don't think have a natural talent baking cookies, but I'll keep trying. Thanks for the recipe!

    My Mom did a lot of baking as well. Unfortunately, I never did get her breads or cookie recipes. But I always look for something close and try them out...

    I wish I had your abilities. While I do very well in the cooking department, most of my baking comes from prepared packages. And water, milk, eggs, butter... etc. Mix and bake. I enjoy doing that and make up some small tins for a few neighbors.
