My mother was never much of a cook. Actually she was (and still is) a registered, card-holding non-cook. The one time of year where she would break her vows to not come into the kitchen was the holidays. As soon as the calendar flipped to December, you would find my mom spending all of her spare time in the kitchen whipping up batch after batch of endless varieties of Christmas cookies. She would make plates containing some of each type to hand out to all of our family’s friends around the community, teachers and co-workers. She put her love, time and gratuity into those delicious plates that gave everyone loads of delicious joy… and I think it pretty much gives her a pass for all the TV dinners my sister and I ate as kids. 😉 (I love you , Mom! You’re the best!)
Nowadays I’m all grown up and carry on my mom’s tradition of handing out plates of goodies during the holidays. These pumpkin pie spice swirled sugar cookie sandwiches with pumpkin cream cheese buttercream are at the top of my favorites list for this years collection. Winning over the Coquito frosted sugar cookies only by a narrow margin due to my intense love of all things pumpkin. 😉 I hope you guys love them too!
