Let the baking begin!
The smells of cookies have begun to waft through the house. So far I've made Russian Tea Cakes, Bizcochitos (Anise cookies), and Chocolate Krinkles. In between the baking, I've been finally getting to some Christmas sewing projects, wrapping, and doing laundry. What a great way to begin the Christmas holiday vacation. The next cookie on my list is Peppernuts. My mom and siblings reading this will most likely remember the peppernuts we received every Christmas in packages from both of our Grandmas. Grandma K always made the cinnamon spiced kind, cut into small nuggets. They were hard and crunchy, and oh, so yummy! Grandma S made a lighter colored peppernut with more of a pepper spice. These were a bit larger, and not quite as crunchy. These were good, too, but my favorite, and the ones I like to make, are the Grandma K peppernuts. What is your favorite Christmas cookie to make -- or eat!?
