  • Here's my list for cookies this year: decorated sugar cookies, chocolate cherry thumbprints, chocolate crinkles, gingerbread biscotti, peanut butter kiss cookies, snowball cookies, bonbons, Empire biscuits and Scotch shortbread (both for the local nursing home. We'll also be making several gingerbread houses on the 12th for the kids and their friends to decorate. Everything's made from scratch.

    Hershey peanut butter blossoms
    shortbread

  • I tend to make chocolate fudge and chocolate, pecan pie at this time of year instead of cookies. Might mix it up a bit this year and make some cookies, though. All these replies are making me hungry! :)

  • My 7 year old loves peanut butter kiss cookies, so those are on the list. We may make others, but I'm not sure yet. I will be making truffles to eat and to give. And we will be having a meal with my family and DH's family. I usually make sides and desserts for both meals.
