I don’t know about you, but scents, smells, and tastes bring back certain memories for me. For example, the smell of gingerbread, peppermint, and similar flavors always brings back memories of Christmas as a child. I suppose it is quite accurate if I say that the smell of baking cookies is powerfully associated with this particular holiday for me.
It seems that I am not the only one with the same experience! The people over at All Recipes have actually come up with a handy all-in-one guide to cookies for the holidays. Dubbed â€œHomemade Holiday Cookies,â€ the guide is in PDF format and can be downloaded for free. This is what the editors have to say about the guide:
If thereâ€™s one time of year when cookies take over the kitchen, itâ€™s the
holidays, so weâ€™ve gathered recipes for highly-rated holiday cookies to help you get things rolling.
Youâ€™ll also find tips for baking and decorating cookies, mailing cookies to far-off friends, and hosting a cookie exchange party. Itâ€™s everything you need to bake up some festive holiday cheer!
Sounds pretty good to me! I love cookies and baked goods but I have to say that this is not my forte. I wouldnâ€™t mind trying my hand at making some for the holidays, though. I took a look at some of the tips presented in the guide and they look manageable â€“ my favorite so far are the Chocolate Rum Balls. Why donâ€™t you download this for yourself and whip up a batch or two for Christmas?
