Cookie Making Parties
Every year when my sisters and I were growing up Mom would let us invite friends and we would have a cookie making party. She would make huge bowls of sugar cookie dough, we would roll it out and make cut out cookies. She had every cookie cutter shape imaginable, stars, christmas trees, angels, wreaths, different ornament shapes, like teardrops and just circles, anything to do with Christmas. Of course there was the powdered sugar icing tinted with food coloring to ice them with. Then came the decorations, silver candy beads, tiny, tiny multi-color candy beads, green and red colored sugar, and tiny candy snowflakes. She also made cookie press cookies, I know that's not the right name for them, I think it is Spritz cookies. Of course we got to use the cookie press and make the different designs. We all had such a good time, and the friends got to take home loads of cookies. Gosh, life sure seemed a lot simplier then.

It did, didn't it? We had those cookies at my g'ma's house every year. Hundreds of them. I loved it. Thanks for writing.
Oh my gosh Sharon that sounds like so much fun! My boys and I used to make cookies all the time and we had a blast. We used egg yolks colored different colors with food coloring and painted the egg yolks on the cookies with little paint brushes and then baked them. It was good messy fun!!
Oh yes, I have wonderful cookie-day memories, too.
I've always made Christmas cookies. I made them with my kids and by myself. It just doesn't seem like Christmas without cookies. When I worked full time I always found time to make one kind of cookie each day from Thanksgiving until Christmas. I gave away more than we ate and I guess I still do. It's Christmas. Dooley
