Christmas Baking and Steves Homestead

Christmas Cookies

Christmas Cookies

The Christmas Cookies are all baked, and some have been eaten. There are 6 types this year: Sandbakkels, Spritz, Pine cones, Russian Teacakes, Chocolate Crinkles, and Peanut Butter Kisses. Tradition requires the baking of some  every year as in requests of family members for their favorite cookie. This year the Sandbakkels and Pine cones were added after the purchasing of Tins at the “Minneapolis Swedish Institute” .  The cookie platter is on a hand quilted  table runner I made many years ago.  Its placement on the diningroom table is another tradition.

Steves Homestead Cookie Tree

Steves Homestead Cookie Tree

This cookie tree can be seen at the” Steves Homestead ” ( House Museum) in San Antonio, TX. The home was all decorated for Christmas when we toured it. The cookie tree was recreated  in the kitchen. Each downstairs room contained a Christmas tree. If you enjoy touring Historic Homes, I definitely recommend the Steves Homestead.
