Grandma's keep the simple classics in cookie jars for the kiddies...
The Queen of England eats the fancy ones with her afternoon tea...
Find a Church pot luck supper and the cookie bar table is filled...
And Christmas cookies are so popular people organize exchanges so you can trade em like Baseball Cards!
So, this is my year to organize my collection of classics (like Old School Peanut Butter), experiment with new versions of interesting combinations (like a Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip), Show off amazing cookie bars suitable for any pot luck (like an amazing Pineapple Cream Cheese that uses a box cake mix, about 10 minutes of hands on work and the illusion of a complicated recipe (maybe the best I have ever eaten and one the other Church ladies will wish they knew your secret)).
Book mark this page as new cookies will be added every week with a goal of an AMAZING Christmas Cookie box giveaway for family and friends!
