One of the things I miss most about my grandparents is baking sweets together. For Christmas time, we loved baking cookies to give out to family and friends. Their favorite cookies were butter cookies or biscuits, those cookies taste like Christmas with the special combination of cinnamon and aniseeds.
My grandfather loved to give the cookies a rustic and organic look, so he used a fork to decorate them, while I loved to roll out the dough and used my grandmother’s collection of cookie cutters.
Now that I’m a mom, baking cookies including these butter biscuits, is still one of my favorite Christmas traditions. I love to give them a rustic look like my grandpa used to do and of course my kids love to use the cookie cutters.
Make them with your family this holiday season!
