    I am guessing I made almost every type possible in the last 2 weeks. (Except for Italian ones.)
    We got carried away and now have more cookies than we have families and friends to eat them all.
    I wish I could drop your favorite cookies here. :)

    Is it like a snowball or wedding cookie? I made a ton! I forgot that I am no longer making them for as many people. I used to give plates to coworkers.

    Yes, like a wedding cookie but I think they are better than any I’ve tasted baked by anyone else because I got the recipe from my wonderful grandmother. :D

    Mike and Happygirl- I wish I could pass you some through the screen!
    Zip- Old family recipes are definitely the best! :)
    Whiz- I never thought of M and M's (green and red- I'd have to eat all of the other colors!) I don't have any! :) Maybe next year!
    Luv- I have never heard of kipful! I love pecans too. I think we used 5 pounds worth while making cookies this yr.

    Those cheap, hard Christmas cookies in a bag from the dollar store are my favorite. Those and a glass of eggnog are great. I know I’m weird. :p

    I’ve never made cookies at Christmas. We are more of a Christmas candy family. My grandmother made all kinds. I especially wish I’d learned to make her peanut butter roll.

    This post was from last Christmas, but I just bought molasses, ginger, and clove powder for gingerbread men! :)
    I seldom buy new spices every year. This year, I just decided to go for it! :) I am getting ready to start baking after Thanksgiving!

    Sounds good. I actually have trouble finding gingerbread cookies where I live (near Los Angeles).

    They sell 1 brand at a store here sometimes, but they are harder than rocks. :)

    Peanut butter blossoms. Fortunately, my wife cooks it low carb. I currently follow a keto diet because I need to lose weight. I also buy ozempic online by my endocrinologist recommendations. It helps me to lower my appetite a little, however, I can't cope with the desire to eat my favorite cookies.
