Some of my fondest holiday memories took place in the kitchen with my mom and grandma. My mom never loved baking, but every Christmas, she dutifully got out the cookie cutters and rolling pin so we could make epic gingerbread houses and thumbprint cookies. The treats themselves were delicious, but what made them so tasty was that my sister and I had a part in making them. There were a lot of wonky iced sugar cookies and gingerbread people who had missing limbs at the end, but my mom would still proudly set out our goodies whenever company was over and compliment her little sous chefs, to our delight.
This holiday season, why not start a festive cooking tradition with the kids in your life? These recipes are easy enough for kids to help with and yummy enough to earn a rightful place at the dessert table of a celebratory feast.
