Happy Bake Cookies Day!

Blogger of the Day: Holly at Petite Panettiere

We've got a batch of peanut butter cookies in the oven now and the whole house smells like warm cookie heaven...yumza!

Both of my Sicilian grandmothers were strong believers in the holiday cookie tradition. In between busy careers and community center volunteering and important family time, they somehow managed to create a tablefilled feast for every holiday, including hundreds of squealingly scrumptious sweets! Nana M specialized in Cuccidati, Biscotti Regina, Almond Fingers and Tutus, while Nana N pressed Anise Pizzelles and rolled Vanilla Chocolate Chip-filled Cannoli...I'm happily melting with the memory of them! To my grandmothers, nothing said love like baking these beautiful handmade cookies and pastries for friends and family. Holly carries on a compassionate baking tradition too...gorgeous treats made with a creative eye and a loving vegan heart. Her family is a lucky bunch to share in these delicious delights and her smiley spirit!  :)

Keep going beyond the cookies...Holly's got biscuits and burgers and scones and granola, boatloads of fudge and puppy treats too! These superyumfuls are next on our cookiemaking list...GF Butterfinger Bars.  :)

Which of Holly's cookies would you bake up first?  ;)
