I visited Tina at home as she was baking with her sisters- Yammy and Dada.  I’m attracted by the pink christmas balls in the front door :-)Cookie Baking Weekend (2) Every year the Banzhaf sisters have a German tradition ( they are German ) during the Bonifacio day weekend. They call it the Cookie Baking Weekend. It’s a tradition handed down from their Grandmother where they get together to bake for 3 days.Cookie Baking Weekend (18) They bake German cookies using the secret recipes from their Grandma and aunt. The first day is preparation of the dough, the next day they form the cookies and bake some Cookie Baking Weekend (16)then more baking on the 3rd day. While they bake they watch movies.  They give the cookies to family and select close friends. They even made a cookbook containing all the recipes!Cookie Baking Weekend (13)They made it so they can pass it down to the next generation!!
