I love to make homemade Tollhouse (chocolate chip) cookies during this time of year. Only I add M&M candies for a more colorful and richer texture to the mix. What cookie recipe do you enjoy making during this time of year?

Well my sister and I are making a bunch of cookies this year. It's been the first year in a long time we have felt like baking and sharing. Today was the beginnings of the process with making rum balls, kahula balls, and white chocolate liquer balls. We might make more of those during the week, still debating on it and deciding which liquer flavors to use. We are also going to make: Chocolate Chip Cookies White Chocolate Chip Cookies Magic Cookie Bars (I'm going to try using M&M's instead of walnuts with it) Molasses Cookies Sugar Cookies To all that we are also adding in some fudge, brownies and I'm making Friendship bread to start sharing with people. We got some tins from the dollar store so we can give them as gifts to people. Should be fun.

My two favorite cookies to make for Christmas are sugar cookies and Russian tea cakes. I love chocolate chip cookies. I made some last week. They didn't last long around here.

I'm with you on the Toll House cookie. The Santa here that my daughter has seen every year (Same one) told her chocolate chip was his favorite. So we do not deviate from that. Yum! We also have made peanut butter cookies as well. Those are always good with some ice cold milk. Even when it's cold outside. What cookie goes with hot coco?

This year I make a lots of cookies during the iedul fitri days. I love all of them and the most important is all my family loves the taste of my cookies. I always love to make the almond london cookies - a cookies which have a baked whole almond inside and coated with a cooking chocolate and top with some baked chopped almond.My spouse love this cookies very much. I manage to make it different from what peoples always make in my place. My almond london is more crunchy and taste better than the others. I also made a famous amos cookies - the chocolate chip with some nuts such as walnut and hazel nut. My mom and my niece loves this cookies very much. I even received an order for my almond london cookies.

I made some basic ones yesterday. I'm planning to learn to make some really nice ones, my grandmother used to make lovely shortbread but at the moment I don't have enough to make them. Shopping at this moment in time is to much stress due to the busy, busy time of year. ~Joey
