Chanukah Cookies

Sugar cookies, rugalah, and poppy seed cookies.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is to get together with my sister, Judy, for a bake-athon.  This year we combined cookie weekend with my parents 60th wedding anniversary, and baked Chanukah cookies.  The recipe for the poppy seed cookies came from my grandmother.

Sarah helped decorate the sugar cookies.   We pack up tins of cookies and give them away as gifts.  So glad we could have a cookie-weekend this year.

For twenty years my mother and I baked cookies one weekend before Christmas, often inviting my best friend to join us and to take some home to her family. When she married, Mother's gift was "the recipe" and a cookie press so that she could make her own. Now, more than thirty years later, she and I still call each other on cookie baking day to say, "are you baking today?" It takes us backward in time and across many miles. That's the power of a baking tradition. So glad you share one, too.

I'm glad we got to fit it in, and the cookies look and taste great!
