We will start our annual Christmas-making and baking as soon as Thanksgiving is over. The boys look forward to this annual tradition.
Hopefully, this tradition will become a favorite childhood memory. I know they look forward to the treats and have been begging for “test runs” of some of their favorite treats.
Here are some of their top 5 favorite treats I make every year:
Mock Thin Mints – The Imaginative One loves this treat. This year I need to get a picture of this treat.
#1 – Watermelon Cookies – We changed the flavors of the Kool-Aid used in the cookie. I highly suggest a flavor of Kool-Aid, such as cherry, for red cookies. You can use green sugar for a cookie that looks festive.
#2 – Peanut Butter Blossoms – The boys have already begged me to bake this one treat for them. They love to help roll the cookie balls in sugar and then put the Hershey Kiss on top. The batch of cookies we baked was eaten within 3 days.
#3 – Snickerdoodles – This is one of the Imaginative One’s favorite cookies. We roll them in green and red sugar to make them more festive.
#4 – Rolo Turtles – This is another treat the boys begged me to allow them to make. They like the turtles with M&M’s instead of pecans. We made a small batch on Monday. We divided them up into 3 parts so that they each only had a certain amount to eat.
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
