Before she passed away, my Grandma gave me her some of her cookie recipes. She asked me to carry on her cookie making tradition and I do. We think of her when we make her Whippersnappers, Christmas Tree Cookies and these Funnel Cake Rosette Cookies.

Funnel Cake Rosettes: A Holiday favorite.
My favorite traditions are Holiday related, especially making cookies, like these funnel cake rosette cookies, at Christmas.
Family traditions start when we make the extra effort to incorporate them into our lives. Some traditions are daily, some seasonally, some on a special day like a birthday or anniversary.
My nieces, who are both in college now, began making cookies with me when they were very young.
I had two sons who were much older and no daughters.
So when the boys started feeling like they were “too old” to help, my sister offered up her girls. And of course, I was delighted!
We have been making cookies together every year since.
Today I have my two nieces, my wonderful daughters-in-law, my granddaughter and my mom who show up on cookie day.
We have made some wonderful memories over the years, and the tradition will continue this Christmas as well.
You can tell by the mess that we enjoy ourselves tremendously!
There are several cookies that we make each year in memory of my Grandma.
Before she passed away, she gave me her recipes, cookies cutters, and rosette maker and asked me to carry on her tradition.
