Baking can be nostalgic and therapeutic, especially when doing it with the ones you love. This past weekend we had a three generation baking day! Grandma, Mom and the kids baked old recipes together. For fun, my kids added the Autumn Sprinkles Mix to mom's old recipe. They baked beautifully! No bleeding or crushing! The kids gobbled them up before I can take a picture of them after they baked! All I kept thinking was that it was too bad I didn't have a turkey cookie cutter! These would have made beautiful turkey shaped cookies. I would wrap them in cellophane and tie them with pretty ribbon and gift them to my nieces and nephews for Thanksgiving!
As we get closer to the good ol' "Turkey Day", it is important to remember what we should be grateful for. Spend time with the ones you love because today is the only day we know we have with them for sure. Take out Grandma's old recipes and give them a try with the family. You never know what memories you might create.
