"Each holiday season, she would bake on her own many different cookies that she would share with all of her family and friends," write the Gordons. "This began back in the early '60s. When she passed away from cancer in 1995, we, her children, decided to continue the tradition and include our children as well." Known to the grandchildren as "Baba," Fran's mother emigrated from the island of Korcula in Croatia, her birthplace.
