Last week, as I was handing out holiday cookies to friends and family, my mother told me about Cookie Week, as occasioned every year by someone with whom she works. The first or second week of December is spent doing nothing but baking cookies, playing Christmas music and watching Christmas movies. Sounds like a perfect vacation to me! I’m so excited about starting my own Cookie Week tradition that I’ve already set the dates (December 5 – 12) for next year. If you don’t mind looking at me in my pajamas and apron, put it on your calendar to stop by and visit (don’t know which state, but I know which room). I’ll take time away from the stand mixer and rolling pin to pour you a cup of coffee and say hello.
