Just in time for the holidays, Gourmet has laid out this wonderful selection of cookies--vanilla crescents, kourambiedes, linzer bars, rugelach...ooo, the choices! We're getting on the road today for the holiday family & friends rounds--Kansas, Indiana, Massachusetts. I can't wait to land at S's parents and set to baking. Have I mentioned my mother-in-law is the most amazing confectioner? She makes caramels from scratch. I just love those old-timey candies and processes (putting the marble slab in the snow!)--they make me dreamy for all the special family traditions. What recipes do you celebrate year after year?
