Holiday cookies

by Nanc filed under recipes on December 27, 2003 09:26 AM

A bit belated, but here they are... the cookies I baked for Christmas.

None were very fancy or traditionally festive, but we're starting our own traditions. A favorite for both Matty and I, and a shared fav between us. Three recipes, all good.

Although none of these recipes are obvious Christmas cookies, they're favorites in our house and made for special occasions (like the holidays).

Bonez's treasured cookie is the Snickerdoodles his mom makes. And, oh yeah, they're very tasty. (Even for a non-chocolate cookie.)

My preferred cookie (and my mother's recipe) is Gingersnaps. The added bonus is that they're a bit Christmasy; like an easy gingerbread. I know that everyone has thier own opinion, but I believe that gingersnaps should be chewy and soft. And that, they are.

And finally, our combined cookie-of-choice is Peanut Blossoms. (Or Peanut Butter Kisses, as they've been known.) The yummy-yet-not-overpowering peanut butter cookie and the just-the-right-amount-of-chocolately-goodness candy center meld together for something special. Mmmmmm.

Now stop drooling and get out your measuring cups. Let's bake!
