A Cookie in Each Hand - IO Theme Day - In the Kitchen

This week we are "In the Kitchen" for the Impression Obsession Theme Day!  

I have fond memories of all the cookies my mom would bake at Christmas. My mom would make a wide variety of cookies during the season.  We would snack on them while watching Christmas specials.  So much fun!  One particular Christmas, I remember she stored all the cookies in coffee tins to keep them fresh.  Mom made sugar cookies with mint icing, spritz cookies, raspberry-filled cookies, and more.  The only problem was they all ended up tasting like coffee!  Mint icing with coffee flavor, umm...not so yummy.  However, great memories were made!
