I am a worker at the Pear Tree, and I have been allowed to incorporate a tribute item into the meal for the day. The tribute item is something that has been passed down through the generations on my mother’s side of the family. What I will be preparing is homemade sugar cookies with homemade frosting on top of the cookies.
Now the person that was the first to make this recipe was my grandmother Jean. She was my grandmother on my mother’s side of the family. When she would make this dessert, everyone would get involved in it and have fun. She would put so much love and dedication into making these cookies to see the smiles they would bring to people’s faces when they would take their first bite and many afterwards.
These sugar cookies are made during the December holiday season. They are especially made on Christmas Eve and day. The reason why we made these during winter is because the frosting is snow white. They are also in the shape of Christmas shapes. They are also made during Christmas because it is a great thing that adults can do with children and have fun. It is also a family tradition.
The taste of the Christmas cookies isvery sweet. The texture of the cookies is a nice, smooth texture. The frosting on the cookies has a very smooth and fluffy feeling. The cookie itself is kind of a smooth and rough texture at the same time.
