If you’re looking for a partridge in a pear tree, I regret to inform you that you’re in the wrong place.
If, however you are looking for writings about Christmas cookies, I got the stuff.
Cookie #1: Spritz
These have never not been on my cookie list. It’s probably the simplest and it’s been my hands down favorite cookie my whole life. I think they just fit into your hand when you’re a kid really well. The fact that they’re mostly butter and that the gun gives them an awesome texture helps too. Nathan, not knowing all this bought me a new spritz gun for my birthday 8 months before we started dating. I didn’t think that my affection could be bought so easily, but if I was being honest, that’s when I REALLY started being interested in him. I was struck by how good of a gift it was (kitchen gadgets speak to a deep place in my heart) and how generous of a gift it was for him to give to someone who was just a casual friend in a big circle of friends. But he’s a generous guy. So you could say that this is the cookie that brought us together.
