We all know that the best holiday cookies are made from more than just flour, butter, sugar and spices. The best cookies tell a story. Maybe it’s a story about where your mother came from. Maybe it’s a story—and a recipe—that’s been passed down from your great- great-grandparents. Maybe your favorite cookie crossed an ocean to get here, or perhaps it came from a neighbor right down the street.
