My favorite cookie would have to be a NM Favorite, Biscochitos. My Dad makes the best Biscochitos and they are so good you can't stop eating them.

I know it's Christmas when I smell them baking.

Linda Palmer said...

My favorite is an old fashioned frosted sugar cookie or sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. I still bake about 6 doz. for my grandkids every Christmas. They love to come help add the frosting or sprinkles.

Sue said...

I have a different favorite everyday LOL! My all time favorite is iced sugar cookies though!

Cammy said...

I love pecan fingers and the peanut butter cookies with the hershey kiss.

Anonymous said...

My favorite Christmas cookie is cut out sugar cookie. I always add a little almond to the dough and the frosting. They are so yummy. All shapes..bells, christmas trees, santas, stockings. So much fun to make and so great to eat. Thanks Michelle for this offer to all your blog readers.

My favorite Christmas cookies are made by my grandmom. I don't know what they're called but they're like miniature pecan pies..oh so good!

I am boring...shortbread. A cup of butter for three dozen...how can you wrong?

Marie Louise said...

Wow there are so many great ones. But I guess my favorite one is sugar cutout cookies. I don't make them as they are way too much work, however, everyone knows I love them and make them for me. How can you go wrong with that.
Hope your husbands surgery goes well and he has a speedy recovery. He must be totally sick of eating baby food.

Louise, that's me!! said...

Ohh what genrous candy.
I make chocolate chip biscuits for christmas but instead of milk choc chips, I add exta vanilla essence and use white chocolate chips and glace cherries.

Dianne said...

Well, Christmas cookies in general are a hit with me :) Actually I think my favorite are cut out sugar cookies with frosting... Hoping we'll be able to make some when my kiddos are here for Christmas....

PatsyB said...

Funny you should speak of cookies and stamping in the same sentence!! Most of my cards have cookie crumbs as decorations!! When I married my husband, I learned to make Pfeffernouse(peppernuts) and they are made with lard (a warning of what your rear will look like!!) but they are fabulous with coffee. Great anise flavor! They are almost as good as your blog candy offering! Congrats on the milestone!

Donalda's Blog said...

What a lovely combination for your blog candy dear.
My favorite cookies to make and eat (not quite sure of the name off the top of my head but it is more like a sugar cookie and as soon as you take them out of the oven you det a Hersheys Chocolate Kiss in the middle of them Oh hum hum hum. Congrats on your hits dear.

kama said...

We don't really have that tradition of having Christmas cookies here in Sweden (except the gingerbread ones). But one thing that I can't be without, (although I have to sometimes because we don't always spend X-mas together), is my fiancée's brother in law's Chrismas candy. It's a secret recipy and we've been trying to duplicate it with...eh...different results. It's made of sugar, cream, syrup, butter and oatmeal. It's impossible to put down once you've started eating them!

My favorite cookies at Christmas are shortbread. My Dad was really fond of them and my Mom didn't have sucess making them so I always made a batch for my Dad at Christmas I either hand delivered them (we spent every second Christmas with my family 400 mile drive) or I sent them by Greyhound. I got the recipe was from my best friend when I was in my teens it was her Grandmas recipe she was Scottish. They are one item on the list every year. My Dad passed away 15 years ago but I think of him every year as I bake my shorbread. Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy. Ann Lind

Hope all goes well with your husbands op.

Love your blog...x

Lana said...

Hi M&M! I love making Angel Cookies during the holiday season. I remember making them with my mom many years ago. They are the ones that you dip in water and then sprinkles and lay on a pan. Just before they are done baking in the oven, you put in a chocolate star. They are so much fun to make and I have carried on the tradition with my own daughters!

I LOVE YOUR BLOG! Happy Day!

Janna said...

My favorite cookie really isn't a cookie it is those holiday wreaths you make with marshmallows, cornflakes and green food coloring. I hope all goes well with your husband!

Thanks,

janna

Pat said...

My favorite would have to be iced sugar cookies with lots of sprinkles on top.

Draygonflies said...

OH gosh I love your cards! And cookies! LOL Spritz would be my favorite. My mom used to make them with her "gun". It was so hard to not eat them right away, but they really are better the next day!

When I grew up and moved to Texas, I'd call her to "get the recipe" every year. She'd stay on the phone with me while I made them and it was almost like we were baking together.

Ahhh fond memories. Thank you for reminding me. I'm going to make them with my daughter this year.

It may not be a true cookie, but 1of my most favorite Christmas sweets is Baklava. Although a bit tedious to make,itis definitely worth the effort. Sort of like some of our stamping projects, I think! LOL

My favorite Christmas cookie is my Grandma's Sugar Cookies! She use to make them for me all the time as a child and even times when I was sick. She passed away 2 years ago right after Christmas but one thing she made sure of shortly before she passed away...she made sure she gave me her special Sugar Cookie recipe!(insert tears here) I will always cherish her & the memories and keep making those cookies for my kids. So good! :)

Love your blog! Keep up the great work and best of luck to your hubby today as he goes for surgery! Will keep him in our thoughts & prayers!
