I was raised in a family of cookieholics, my grandmother would make at least
a half a dozen varieties every Christmas and they always disappeared VERY quickly.
My absolute favorite is chocolate chip, but snickerdoodles, and peanut butter blossoms, are right there. My wife also makes Linzer Pinwheels which I never thought I would like, but I love them.
Through October-New Year's my wife usually makes a new cookie every weekend, so we can try new things to add to our celebration, and do a dry run for her cookie swap at school. (I wonder why my cholesterol is a little high)
