Cookie-Palooza, Twelve Days of Cookies

teaspoon_cookies_little_house_dunes12

I hope you’ve been squirreling away pounds of butter because tomorrow we’re kicking off Cookie-Palooza! I give out a lot of cookie bags as gifts to teachers, the dog groomer, friends and then, of course, I have to reserve some for family party trays.

My holiday cookie list has changed over the years, and I’ve edited it down to what I think are the best of the best – at least until I fall in love with a new recipe 🙂 What can I say – it happens. . .

I have a few criteria: the cookies should not be something otherwise readily available and overall I look for a nice variety and mix. Several of them need to be baked ahead as they improve over time,  and the more labor-intensive ones I do in parts because this is a holiday marathon people – not a sprint!

  1. oooh, those look like the spoon cookies i have made the last few years – so time consuming to make but super delicious!

      I bet they are the same – I know it takes a bit of time, but there’s really nothing like them – which makes them such a great gift!
