It's "Bake Cookies Day!" & Brownie Crackles Cookie Recipe

I delight in baking many kinds of cookies during the month of December. (After all - I am a BAKER=) I have cookie baking nights with both daughter-in-loves and my granddaughters too.  It's a fun thing to do together and makes for great memories...and makes great gifts for sharing too.  Last year we were all on the front page of the little newspaper that I write a monthly food column..donned in our aprons baking up a storm.

Here we are - these pictures were taken a couple of years ago as we view the works of our hands. GREAT bonding time together!
