I always make wonderful plans for the holiday treats I’ll make — and the cute ways I’ll package them — but I just never have time to bake for Christmas.

I want the holidays to be special, but I know that the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas are always the busiest and craziest of the year for our family. Even the best-laid plans during those few weeks tend to go awry. 

When I was growing up, I made holiday cookies with my mom every year. The process meant a lot to me. Even as a teenager — when I was too busy to spend a weekend day baking with her — I was comforted by the knowledge that she would unfailingly make the twisty, little, frosted cookies that made the house smell delicious.

Although my kids and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen together, we don’t have a standing, we-make-this-every-year recipe like I did growing up. Preparing for the lightning-fast approach of the holiday season, I found myself thinking about this dilemma. Suddenly the answer seemed obvious: baking for Thanksgiving!
