Wishing you a wonderful holiday!

No matter how you celebrate the holidays, I hope it's a time of relaxation and reflection with those you love and hold dear. Our celebrations will be small this year, however I am looking forward to time spent with our extended family in January which has become part of our holiday tradition. There will of course be knitting...because what could be better than knitting quietly by a cozy fire while everyone else is freezing on the ski slopes ;) I do expect some cookie baking with the grandkids which won't exactly be quiet, but will be full of memories for all of us.
Speaking of cookies...
There has only been a little baking this year, but it's been memorable. Lots of discussions at the shop about Peppernuts (Pfeffernusse), a hard, little, traditional German cookie made at Christmastime. A friend shared a delicious recipe from her long family history that will be added to my collection. A trip to bake Peppernuts with my mom, sister, and cousins was an unexpected addition to my typical holiday baking schedule. Maybe next year I will plan ahead and bring some Peppernuts to our Holiday Open House!

Not Peppernuts, but still a favorite recipe in my collection is this Snickerdoodle cookie recipe. If you need a quick addition to your plate of cookies for Santa, this is a good one!
