I’m not a huge cookie fan, but at Christmas, it’s cookie time, and I indulge with a few varieties.
I bought these cut glass cookie jars at least 35 years ago at the Williamsburg Pottery Factory in Virginia. I don’t fill them every Christmas, but because of nostalgia, I can’t bring myself to part with them either.
With Covid this year, people aren’t exchanging or sharing food. And since I live alone, filling them up, usually means I have to eat them all myself.
Since I was decorating the kitchen with my collection of green vintage shiny brights, I decided to hang a few around their necks.
Vintage shiny brights are a favorite of mine. And how nicely they couple up with my vintage McCoy mixing bowl.
Full disclosure, I have to admit I have eaten all of the cookies in these jars already. With a little help from my daughter, but mostly by myself. But it’s Christmas . . . so why not indulge? January is for eating healthy and losing weight. December is not.
These are my favorites . . . filled with dates and nuts.
And I might as well add a cup of hot chocolate while I’m at it.
I hope it’s cookie time at your house so I’m not eating alone.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and healthy New Year.
