There are so many amazing cookie recipes out there that are perfect for this occasion.
Let me tell you why cookies are perfect for Mother’s Day. First off, who doesn’t love cookies, right?
But beyond that, there’s something special about homemade cookies that scream “love and appreciation.”
Think about it – your mom probably spent years baking cookies for you when you were growing up. Now, it’s your turn to return the favor!
Plus, cookies are a great way to customize a gift to your mom’s preferences.
Does she have a favorite flavor? A specific dietary restriction? You can tailor the cookies to her exact liking.
And let’s remember that baking cookies are a fun activity you can do with your mom (or if you’re not able to be with her in person, you can still share the recipe and the final product virtually).
It’s a great way to bond and create new memories together.
So yeah, cookies are an ideal gift for Mother’s Day. They’re delicious, customizable, and offer a unique way to connect with your mom.
Plus, who can say no to a homemade treat made with love?

First of all, cookies are a classic treat that almost everyone loves. And when it comes to showing your mom some love on her special day, what better way than with a sweet and delicious treat?
But it’s not just about the taste of the cookies. Baking them can also be a fun activity with your mom or even a surprise for her.
It’s a great way to spend quality time together and create something unique you can enjoy.
Plus, when you bake cookies for your mom on Mother’s Day, you’re not just giving her a tasty treat. You’re also showing her how much you care and appreciate everything she does for you.
It’s a simple yet meaningful gesture that can make her day.
So, whether you’re baking chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal raisins, there’s no denying that Mother’s Day and cookies go hand in hand.
It’s a tradition that’s sure to continue for years to come!
Personal Note from Janine
Becoming a mom wasn’t a piece of cake for me. It took years of struggling with infertility issues before we finally decided to go for our foreign adoption in 2000. We traveled across the world to bring home our baby boy and then went back to Kazakhstan a year and a half later to adopt our amazing daughter. Those were such special times with our kids, where we immersed ourselves in the culture, traditions, people, and food.
Speaking of food, there was this unique Russian Spice cookie that we loved called pryaniki. They were so delicious with a burst of spices and flavors, not too sweet, but the icing on top was perfect. They’re traditionally served with tea during Christmas and contain all the best spices like cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice.
But hey, I don’t let the time of year stop me from making these fun cookies. I even buy them from Russian grocery stores, and with the first bite, I’m transported back to our time in Kazakhstan. By the way, if you’re wondering where that is, it’s in Central Asia, among the countries ending in “stan.”
Anyway, I’m excited about this upcoming Mother’s Day!
I’m so blessed to finally be a mom to two lovely kiddos.
PS: I’m going to try this recipe.

This Week’s Tip – Where to Find Unbromated Flour
Costco Organic Flour
You’re probably wondering what the heck is, bromate. Bromate, or potassium bromate, is a chemical compound often used as a flour improver in bread making. It helps to strengthen the dough and enhance its elasticity, resulting in a better rise and texture of the bread.
However, there are health concerns about potassium bromate, as it has been classified as a possible human carcinogen.
So, whenever possible, I buy unbromated flour. And thankfully, the Central Milling Organic at Costco fits the bill. So, if you have a Costco membership, make sure to grab one on your next shopping trip.
Otherwise, you can buy King Arthur’s flour which is unbromated!
