Festive Time of Year = Cookies

The best part about the holiday season is getting together with family and friends and sharing special moments of celebration.  Everyone has their own idea of what that means:  dinners, cocktail parties, festive outdoor events, trimming the tree - you know what I mean.  One of my favourite traditions is the cookie baking celebration at Liaison College Kitchener.
Every year friends and family gather at the Liaison College in Kitchener to bake assorted cookies for the holidays.  As it happens, the date usually coincides with my mom's birthday, so we make it a special baking day and lunch all in one.  We start at 10 a.m. and, in teams of 4 to 6, bake different types of cookies while the radio is tuned into holiday music and warm drinks are served.  Then, while the cookies cool on the racks, we assemble for a light lunch and toast to my mom's birthday.  This year it's 76 years young.

Chef Elaina and her "elves" are so organized and talented that the day is seamless and totally enjoyable.
 
 
While we are enjoying a light lunch and refreshments.  The elves pack the cookies into tins and as each leaves they take a wonderful tin of goodies home.  It really is a special day.
