What kind of cookie exchange will you have if you don't have an assortment of Christmas cookies. Some of you have cookies you make each year because it's part of your heritage. Others make a certain cookie because of the memory it holds. Maybe there is a cookie you love but because it's such a pain to make, you only do it once a year.
Whatever the reason for this one cookie standing out, will you share it with us in a comment below. I'd love to hear why the recipe is special to you or the reason you decided to share it with everyone. Thank you in advance. My favorite is one I attempt to make each year because of the memory it holds yet I've yet to make it like my mom - I'll keep trying though.
My Favorite: Betty Crocker Candy Cane Cookies
The reason these are my favorite...because I enjoyed watching my mother make them, and I like mint. Mom's patience and wisdom to now what was enough rolling without overdoing always amazed me. Thanks Mom!
