For me, cookies are quintessentially Christmas. I have so many holiday memories involving cookies in one way or another, from baking them with my mother as a child, to baking large batches of sugary goodness to fill holiday tins as gifts, back when I worked outside the home.
Many years ago, my family had one of those Christmas Story sort of episodes. My younger brother was at that age when kids start to seriously question the validity of Santa, and get all funny and sleuth-like. I was a few years older, and playing dumb, figuring I got more loot that way… conniving lil’ critter wasn’t I. Despite his best efforts, my brother hadn’t managed to “break” anyone, and Christmas morning had arrived. As my brother and I raided our stockings, then hit the tree to see what Santa had brought, it appeared little brother had failed to expose “Santa”. We sat on the couch munching on goodies from the stockings. Apparently, my brother wasn’t a fan of the little Spritz cookies that were in the stocking and shoved them aside (I think they were green). My father got frustrated by this, and scolded him, saying something like “Don’t do that, your mother worked hard making those cookies for you.” A sudden silence hit the room. My brother pounced on the faux pas, wallowing in the satisfaction of a mystery solved. That my friends, is how cookies kicked Santa Claus out of the house.
In memory of the infamous Spritz cookie incident, I have a Chocolate Peanut Butter Spritz Cookie recipe for you. Hopefully this one won’t get Santa booted from anyone’s house.
