I know it is Christmas Eve. You are done baking cookies. You are done shopping and wrapping and planning. It’s time to sit back and enjoy, right?
But I thought I’d share one last recipe with you, you know, as a Christmas gift. It comes with a fun little story of how my sister and I learned to bake. (Hint: you start by reading the recipe!)
These raisin-filled orange-scented cookies are easy enough to put together, but they come off feeling a bit extravagant. They use simple ingredients that seem fancy in a sugar cookie. And, if you are lucky, Grandma will ask you for the recipe by the end of the night.
