You shouldn't buy things that you can't afford to buy.
The REASON for the SEASON is to ENJOY SPENDING time together not SPENDING MONEY that you don't have.
But if you want to get someone a special gift you can make them their favorite kind of pie to ENJOY.
Do remember the days when your neighbor would make A PLATE OF HOMEMADE COOKIES to pass out to the families she knew?
We all excitedly waited each year until Mrs Debby would bring over her assortment of delicious cookies that were a big part of our CHRISTMAS JOY.
One year we were going out of the state for Christmas so she gave us a big box of HOMEMADE COOKIES to ENJOY on our long 14 hour ride.
When we arrived at our destination it was freezing outside and snowing so we quickly got our items out of the car and went inside to get warm.
We spent three days in the dead of winter visiting family and friends.
When we were packing the car up to go on that long drive home we realized that we had forgotten to take in our box of CHRISTMAS COOKIES.
BUT..... LUCKILY....The freezing temperatures kept the cookies fresh so we could still ENJOY them on the long drive home.
Do you have a favorite CHRISTMAS COOKIE RECIPE that you like to make?
