Chocolate Chips, Sugar Cookies, or Gingerbread?

Chocolate Chips, Sugar Cookies, or Gingerbread?

‘Tis the season for cookies! I just went to a cookie walk, which was similar to a bake sale, but they only had cookies. You get to pick many different types of cookies, and pay accordingly. It kind of reminded me of a cookie swap, but this was a fundraiser.

My kids and I do engage in cookie making during the Christmas season, but other than chocolate chips and some cut out sugar cookies, we don’t really have any traditional holiday favorites that we make. My sister however, makes candy cane cookies, and awesome gingerbread men and women, which she and her kids bake a few weeks before Christmas but decorate on Christmas Eve, each and every year.

I think this year I may make some pecan pie cookies which I bought at the cookie walk and maybe Mexican Wedding Cookies (love them), if I find the time. What are you favorite Christmas cookies?  Or if you celebrate Hanukkah, are there any traditional Hanukkah cookies you make annually?

Maybe some of your favorites will make it to our baking schedule this year. Here’s to having a yummy holiday season!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
