hard to believe it is already the second week of january. i had hoped to post this sooner but my life got in the way! when i was growing up, we would go to my uncles on christmas day every year. all of the family would gather for an informal dinner followed by dessert and then presents. the best part of that celebration were the cookies that my aunt and uncle would make for us. one of my favorites was always the wheat cookies. a rolled sugar cookie with whole wheat flour, they were very simply decorated with just a piece of glaceed cherry. so simple yet so memorable. this year, i made a batch with my younger daughter-i rolled and cut, she applied the cherries.
