As much as I love Pinterest, there is something about a hand-written recipe on an index card that Pinterest can’t offer. Maybe it is the memories, the traditions, or maybe just because I can depend on them. I’ve made them for years, my Mom has made them for years, I know how they will turn out! I like to look at the handwriting, my mother’s penmanship. The same penmanship I would read every summer when I went off to camp and she would send me letters, or when I stayed home sick and she penned my note to get back into school. For me, those hand-written recipes mean so much more.
Sharleen and I decided to pulled out a few of our Mom’s best Christmas cookie recipes and will share them with you over the next few weeks. Rather than photograph, I decided to illustrate them in an infographic style, which turned out to be so much fun! How often do you find yourself digging through your cupboard looking for a bottle of vanilla to sketch?
Welcome to week one and first up are Mexican Wedding Cakes. Sugar and butter, and more sugar… what’s not to love about these cookies? They’re easy to make and relatively inexpensive. Add them to your list!
Next week, Sharleen will share our buckeye recipe so make sure you check back! Enjoy.
