I’ve been told I have an old soul.  I love all things vintage and old-fashioned, whether it’s clothing, ideals, or recipes. My Grandma Charlotte passed at Christmas time when I was a baby.  It was hard on my Mom, but we made her sugar cookies every year to honor her memory.  This is the REAL DEAL.  It’s not some fancy schmancy dough in a bag that is artificially made to create the most perfect Martha-Stewart-Pin-Worthy cookies.  It’s old-timey dough and an old-timey recipe.

My Mom and I would listen to “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and dance in the kitchen as we made cookies. The memories are so fond. Grandma Charlotte, her Mother, passed away at Christmas the year I was born, so it’s always been a bittersweet time in our home. This is one of the only pictures we have of me and Grandma Charlotte.

 

 

Grandma Charlotte’s cookies best made with vintage cookie cutters.

I will warn you, it’s a cantankerous dough so you may have to talk to it, beg, curse at it or encourage it to behave.  It’s also an overnight dough, so you have to actually plan to make the cookies.  You can’t just have a free afternoon and say oh let’s make cookies.

When I was a kid, I often got to invite a friend over to help me decorate the cookies. Or have Daddy help.

 

 

We have passed down the tradition and before I had to go gluten free, Stepson would help to make and decorate the cookies.  He invited a friend over, and the carnage began!

These cookies take some effort, but are totally worth it.  Wouldn’t these cookies be great to serve on this adorable Mrs. Claus Cookie Co tray with a glass of (vegan) milk and a seasonal straw?

I know we are all super busy, and everyone is looking for a quick and easy sugar cookie to make. Got it. But I think it’s more important to preserve our family traditions and preserve our past.

I know these cookies are going to end with me, especially now since I have to eat gluten free and can’t make them anymore.  So humor me here and appreciate the history and memories.
