SUGAR COOKIES

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

Like Cocoons, this sugar cookie recipe is a holiday tradition. Now, I am sure most people have a favorite sugar cookie recipe so, why would you need mine? Well, one bite (OK, two then) says it all! Well, just in case you don’t have a sugar cookie recipe- here is our family’s recipe which I obtained from John’s mother. She made sugar cookies every Christmas. They were a real tradition around their home and I have continued the tradition with my children.   I usually quadruple the sugar cookie recipe and divide the dough into balls so that each child will...

Cocoons is one of those holiday cookie recipes that evoke memories of tradition. Little white, melt-in-your-mouth balls of powder sugared goodness are a sure bet when it comes to pleasing folks! The cocoons recipe is a recipe from John’s mother who made them only at Christmas time. I have tried to hold fast to the tradition but I falter! They are just too good to only have a the holidays. I have served cocoons at bridal showers, baby showers and parties for parties sake. Cocoons have been a family favorite holiday cookie before I began the GAPS diet and still are! I...
