With Christmas coming up it is the time of the year to fill the house with the scent of joy. Nothing spells out, or smells out, the scent of cookies baking to bring the family together, not just at Christmas but all year round.
Some believe that it is the scent of cookies cooking that brings Santa to your house in the first place. Who knows, maybe they are right! After-all, the scent of the cookies baking will waft out the chimney and into the neighborhood and Santa follows that scent down the chimney to get his reward.
It doesn’t really matter what flavor you use, chocolate chip, sugar, peanut butter… they are all good. You can decorate them for the holidays, or serve them plain… they are going to disappear really fast either way.
And for many, making them is as much fun as eating them. Maybe it’s the anticipation, the togetherness of preparing or just sitting around waiting for them to cook… it seems to bring out the best in everyone.
So get out the cookie cutters, the chocolate chips, the dough and whatever you need and get started! Make some cookies for everyone in your family, your neighbors and your friends.
How to celebrate – Make some cookies. Buy scented candles and imitate the scent of baking cookies. Buy a new set of cookie cutters.
