Hey, Crazy4Fiction readers. This is Alyssa, associate marketing manager at Tyndale House Crazy4Fiction. Every year since I can remember, my family has dedicated an entire day to baking Christmas cookies.
We make a large assortment of cookies, from peanut butter to mint to molasses. But my favorite has always been the classic sugar cookie cutout. (If you are interested, my recipe is below.) After all of the cookies are baked, we make tons of frosting in all sorts of different colors and decorate the night away. Please enjoy watching my family’s home video of our yearly tradition.

There’s just something special about Christmas cooking that can always evoke a memory. Below, America’s favorite Duck Commander family, the Robertsons, share their favorite holiday treats.
