Bake Cookies


What's Christmas without cookies? One staff member at FE makes baking a family affair.

"Each December, my mom makes a large batch of spritz cookie dough. We use a cookie press, food coloring, and sugar sprinkles to create holiday treats in seasonal shapes and colors. This is a fun family activity with delicious results – and don't forget to save a plate of cookies for Santa Claus."
