This weekend I was blessed once again to be with my best friends, this time to make and exchange Christmas cookies. We all have such busy lives, and it is a rare treat to get together and just chat and eat and bake.
Of course, we exchanged so much more than cookies. The kids exchanged powdered sugar pats on the back, we exchanged updates on the family, recipes, and some sad stories of loss of loved ones. And of course we shared warm hugs, warm food, love and acceptance.
So, in the spirit of sharing, I share this Persian Cookie recipe with you. I usually add some sliced almonds on the top before baking. Also, you may have to play with the oven temperature and timing, as we noticed some real variations among ovens.
I sincerely wish you a wonderful holiday season. Remember to take time out to enjoy the season and to share the story of the first Christmas with the kids, grandkids and anyone who will listen!
Blessings to you and your families,
