Love: Langley woman’s shortbread duties continue today, in Mom’s honour

Love: Start your own family traditions - a special section of the Langley Advance published Dec. 8, 2016

When I was 11 and 12 years old, my mother wasn’t well and I took over the role of making the family Christmas shortbread recipe for our very large family.

To this day, I still make this shortbread every year in honour of my mother, who passed away when I was 15.

Merry Christmas.
