Every year my kids & I would bake cookies for their teachers. Their favorite ones were sugar cookies. They loved to cut out the different shapes. Now that they are in college, it is hard to find time to do this. Occasionally we squeeze in time to bake one batch of cookies together.

It's always harder when everyone is going in different directions. Hope you took pictures of the times you baked cookies together.

This is really a memory of my mother's.....every year since I was born my mother would painstakingly roll, cut and bake delicate butter cookies. When she finished with the baking she would sit for hours and ice and decorate them. One year when I was 20 months old I pulled on the corner of the table cloth and all but 2 cookies ended up on the floor. Needless to say I have heard that story every year since I was old enough to "understand" my tablecloth pulling fiasco! When my boys were little I used to make sure that they were entertained in the other room while I iced!!

We were a bit rushed when I was growing up & my Mom didn't really like cooking all that much.  So when slice & bake cookies came out it greatly improved our odds of having cookies. :)

My mom did the baking AND knitting when I was in grade school. The teachers would fight to get us kids in their class as they were the ones getting the goodies

 I surprised seven of my teachers in high school when I fixed them a holiday meal with the permission of the principal. Got excused from classes and had a ball in the home ec room.

   I always prefer drop cookies.  When our children were young we used to make cut out ones.  I usually made the biggest mess and had to clean up.  I usually make double batches of our favorite rsecipes, and they sill disappear quickly eventhough the kids are in their 40's.  Mary Ann S.

I try to keep the Christmas Spirit alive all year so I got some cinnamon air freshener spray and when I spray it my husband looks all over the house for gingerbread cookies.  Most of the time when it's 90 degrees out he is disappointed there are no cookies to be found.  He really looks forward to cooler weather because he knows he might get lucky and actually find them....LOL

In Response to Christmaas baking memories:
My sisters and I get together to bake Christmas cookies.  The cookies are not as important as the time spent together, working and having fun.  Even the husbands get into the act, not only in tasting, but helping with the baking.  We all take a break during the day and go to the local resturant for lunch.  This saves time cooking at home, gives us all a break and helps to add to the fun of the day.

I remember when I was growing up,during the Holidays my mom would stay up all hours of the night baking hundreds of dozens of all kinds of cookies to give to family and friends.We always took cookies to school for our teachers and our fellow students.I Would stay with her for hours sometimes just watching and helping her.She made homemade bread and nut rolls ,poppy seed rolls,butter rings.everything looked beautiful and tasted so wonderful.My brother and I would sit patiently waiting to lick a spatula or the beaters from the mixer if she made frosting.I treasure my childhood memories.
