Decorated cookies can look more interesting in non-traditional colors. Instead of the usual green, I fashioned these cookies on a white tree. At Christmas my sister-in-law decorates two trees, a traditional fresh pine with colorful lights and ornaments, and the other a white angel tree. It makes the prettiest tree ever and looks so brilliant and stunning. She takes a fresh frazier fir and adorns it with white lights and silver and white ornaments. Most of the ornaments are angels. She was into angels before angels were cool. I should know; I’ve known her since I was 13 when she began dating my brother in high school. She has been a big sister and close friend ever since. In those early years she took me shopping, spent hours sharpening my routine for head majorette tryouts and we were each others maid of honor. She’s always been there no matter what and I’m proud to have her for my sister. After more than forty years she continues to shower our family with kindness and love.
