My husband’s aunt (my aunt in-law?) is a real cook and baker. I’m a hobby cookie decorator. She is the real deal. Nate eats all of my cast off rejected cookies. During the holidays, this means a lot of cookies. By the time we get to Christmas, Nate declares that he cannot eat another cookie. And then his aunt hands him a bag of sugary buttery baked goods and suddenly he can actually eat another cookie (or ten.)
Nate’s aunt is my baking hero. So when she tagged me in a picture of beautiful blue and white silhouette Christmas cookies, I decided I had to make something like that. I don’t have the discipline to stick to a two-color palette, but I think I captured a bit of the mood.
