Baking Christmas Cookies: Heritage, Tradition and Bonding

We've been baking and eating a lot lately (who hasn't, right?).  There are many, many cookies out there -- from the Canadian and European sides of our family. Many that we love to make or buy each year. But this year, I came across a recipe for a bunch of different varieties of cookies based on a simple ice box cookie recipe. The fun part is that two of them matched my kids heritage (and my taste buds) perfectly.

Using the recipes from Chatelaine, we made Black Forest Icebox Cookies (but replaced the maraschino cherries with actual sour cherries -- harder to find, but they had them at our IGA) and Maple Bacon Icebox Cookies. All the deliciousness of Canada and Germany's Black Forest rolled together.

The end result...delicious. :)

Gonna google the black forest ones (the link brings you to advertising for Chatelaine mag and I already have it through Air Miles).

Sounds and looks delish. They (Chatelaine) have another icebox cookie I saved someplace and make at least several times a year. So I have high hopes, being that I am not a baker.

The ad is just a pop-up that you can close and then you'll see the recipe. Annoying, but the link should be correct.
