Everybody has a different definition of when the “holiday season” actually starts: Thanksgiving Day; Black Friday; Halloween (if you ask most major retailers); when they bring home a their freshly cut tree; and so on. I am no different. My sign arrived in the mail today — galettes!
Galettes are a cookie that has been a holiday tradition in my family for as long as I have been alive (and for almost 100 years before that!). These cookies are made by hand, one or two at a time, and sent all over the country to members of our family. For years, my grandmother was the official galette-maker, but a couple years back, my dad took over. I don’t even want to know how many hundreds of these he has to make each year for our growing family (the galette iron he has handles two cookies per batch), but I certainly am glad he does it.
