My kitchen floor has been covered in flour and sugar over the past few weeks. We have been on a bit of a baking marathon, trying out new recipes from Sarah's 25 Days Of Christmas Cookie Countdown and making some of our favorite recipes.
I love to bake, especially with my kids, and we have been having so much fun. We've delivered some treats to friends and neighbors, some are in the freezer for Christmas, and plenty have been eaten.
One of my favorite cookies to make with the kids is roll out sugar cookies. It brings back memories from my childhood baking cookies with my mom and my grandma. One thing I always loved was my mom and my grandma's tin cookie cutters. Last year, my mom sent me some of her tin cookie cutters to start my own collection. It was so sweet to see my kids using the same cookie cutters I used as a little girl, making memories that will last them a lifetime.
