Cooking a Christmas Treat

This recipe has been a favorite of our family for a long time.  When Alex and I got married we started making Christmas treats for our friends and family together.  When the kids joined our family, we introduced them to many of our holiday traditions including preparing goodies for loved ones.  Cooking is definitely a universal expression of love, and this activity helped to strengthen our family bond.
