Season’s Favorite Holiday Cookies

images

I have two childhood memories that center around Christmas cookies. My Mom’s no-bake cookies and my Aunt’s sugar cookies. I can still see my Mom stirring the cocoa for the no-bakes and can still smell their savory, sweet, aroma. I remember being just barely tall enough to peek up at the waxed paper-lined kitchen counter to sneak me a cookie while they were still warm.

My Aunt made the best sugar cookies that I can remember. The shapes that I remember the most were the Christmas trees, the candy canes, and the wreaths. I like soft doughy cookies and my Aunt’s were the best. She lived just three blocks down from our house and I still remember walking to her house with my parents…visiting, and eating those cookies. Those were the good old days.

What are the cookies that you remember as a child? Which ones were your favorites?

If you’re like most people…you will come up with the following four

*Sugar Cookies

*Chocolate Chip Cookies

*Peanut Butter Cookies

*Gingerbread Cookies

These four kinds of cookies are America’s top pick when it comes to holiday cookies. There are many variations of each kind. But my favorite…other than the cookies I mentioned at the beginning of this article, is chocolate chip cookies. Every Christmas, my Sister-In-Law brings everyone in the family a big bag of them. It’s a tradition with her. She enjoys baking chocolate chip cookies for us all.

Below is my Sister-In-Law’s recipe

(It’s actually the same recipe that is in the Betty Crocker cookbook)

bettycrocker.com

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened

1/3 cup shortening

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

(The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup chopped nuts, my Sister-In-Law doesn’t include nuts)

Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix sugars, margarine, shortening, egg and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

I look forward to these every year. I too, have made them many times and they don’t last long around our house. My Husband loves them.

Do you bake cookies for the holidays? Everyone has their personal favorites.

If you’re baking cookies this Christmas, don’t forget to leave Santa a special plate full of them.

Business Holiday Cards Etiquette- When Professional Translation Is Necessary

images15

There are written rules and unwritten rules that go with sending holiday cards both nationally and internationally. Several rules overlap when it comes to common sense and basic manners. When it comes to sending off international holiday cards for businesses- when is it okay to trust in basic translation or when to hire a professional translator to write those very important messages?

One very important rule of thumb- purchasing pre-made holiday cards with a message in the foreign language already printed on the cards is most likely written and spelled correctly. You can order these cards online from multiple locations and feel good about what message you are sending out.

Basic Business Holiday Card Etiquette

Maybe the most important thing you can do is pay attention to traditions and religions. If you are unsure if your client celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Christmas , send a Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings or Winter Wishes
Make sure your list is up-to-date with correct names and addresses. If you do this on a regular basis. Not only will you save on postage by avoiding return to sender, you wont want to forget new clients that you will want to stay in contact.
Even though you may have 2000 holiday cards that you send out- be personal and sign each one. It makes a huge difference professionally and personally. Going a step further and writing a personal message can make the world of difference. Only make sure your message to foreign countries is properly translated.
Dont forget to include the staff or the spouse in the greeting portion of the card and always use proper titles.

All of these tips will ensure your dont embarrass your company as well theirs. To make sure your national and especially international cards are delivered in time, send them out early! Make a goal to have your cards out December 1st. When thinking if you should send anything besides a holiday-appropriate card, like sending chocolates, fruit cake or other edible packages, think about the shelf-life and how the food will be received. More than likely if you wanted to send smoked fish, tightly wrapped chocolates or canned nuts will always ensure that the food is fresh. Sending spoiled or stale food is much worse than not sending anything at all!
