Christmas Cookies

The Queen Mother making cookies

I have felt an urge, or more likely a pang of guilt has been urging me, to make Christmas cookies, the kind you roll & cut out and put frosting on. I remember how my Oma used to make these and I also remember the best ones at the bakery when I was young! If I do manage to do it, I think it will be bloggable.

That is sooo incredible--both the cookies your Mom is making and the formatting of your picture.

Jewels; Knowing your mother and her many talents, I am guessing these are not the typical looking cottages but copies of some famous buildings from the Netherlands. I see the houosing development has also enveloped your mom! Donna

Yes, I forgot to mention these are the canal houses of Amsterdam.
