Better Homes and Gardens did an article on my Grandma Petersen and her Christmas baking last fall and it's finally coming out on newsstands today! My mom, sister and niece are also in the pictures with my grandma as a whole generation of Petersen women who enjoy baking. It is a special edition magazine from BHG called Christmas Cookies. It's an exciting event for my grandma as she also turns 85 in just a few days. How fun to be featured in Better Homes and Gardens for your birthday!
My grandma loves baking, especially for her family. She has passed on her love of baking to all of the women in the Petersen family. You can always count on her to have cookies for you when you visit. What I love most about her cookies besides their yumminess, is that they are miniature size. My grandma's baking really comes to life at Christmastime. She wraps up all of her Christmas cookies for every family. Some of my favorite cookies are featured in the magazine, like the sugar cookies, gingersnaps, and chocolate drop cookies! If you would like to share in my love for my grandma's Christmas cookie recipes as well as get her tips for packaging cookies for Christmas, pick up a copy of Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cookies magazine!
Here is a picture of the first two pages of the article. I love the picture of my grandma and niece Julia rolling out the cookie dough together.
