Many families have holiday baking traditions that span generations. My mom used to bake for Christmas, but us girls didn't really participate, so when I found out about other people's cookie-making traditions I was a bit surprised. A good friend of mine gets every sprinkle she can get her hands on and makes dozens and dozens of cookies with her daughter. My daughter and I often bake a few things, like cookies for the neighbors or some holiday bread for the house, but we don't really bake as many as my friend.
New recipes are always fun to mix in with your annual favorites, and I thought the wreath cookies in this list of fun baking recipes looked pretty good. The carmelita cookie bars also sound delicious; my mother always made cookie bars at Christmas time. She'd often make cookie cakes in the shapes of hearts, too.
