hmm, my favorite cookie. Hard, since I love cookies. I guess it would have to be thumb print cookies. I only make them during the holidays and they are so yummy. This weekend I am in a cookie exchange. I have to make 11 dozen macaroons. Someone shoot me now. The pendants are so cute. I would love to win one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

My ALL-TIME favorite Christmas cookie is my Grandma's recipe for (what we call) "Candy Cane Cookies". They are made of red and white dough, rolled out into long strands, twisted together, formed into a candy cane and baked. She usually put a touch of almond extract in them for that extra touch. Aaaahhhh...Christmas!
