Nana loved baking and made so many wonderful desserts. But my favorite time of year was Christmas because then I got to sit and watch and help Nana make her large variety of Christmas cookie favorites. She baked all day and then usually the next. I got to sample each and every cookie : ) This is one example of Nan's Christmas cookie recipes and it is a favorite in my family since I now make it every year!
