A memory of my late mother

My mom made Aunt Chick Christmas cookies all through her life. When I was in grammar school, I would bring these special cookies to my teacher. She would spend days making these beautiful works of art. The last year that she was with us (before she went into assisted living) we made these cookies. She was around 95 at the time. After she passed away, I decided to try these on my own to see how I would do. I only made the stuffed stockings and the Christmas trees. They came out alright but not as pretty as the ones my mom used to make. Sorry I couldn’t attach a picture. These cookies are a gift of love.
