French macarons

My mom and I always had a tradition where we’d start baking cookies 3-4 days before Christmas. We were monsters in the kitchen always arguing over which cookies to make each year. Where ever I lived in the world, she’d come and we’d bake cookies. We’d bake night and day, hundreds of cookies. We’d pack them in tins, decorative boxes, and bags and for 2 days before Christmas, we’d go visiting. For years, we brought people cookies. After my mom died, I lost my Christmas baking enthusiasm. But our cookies were other people’s Christmas traditions too, and as people told me how sad they were not to have our cookies, I slowly started making cookies again at Christmas, always thinking of mom. Here’s to mom — may she be the angel who helps me bake this holiday season.
