    Eggnog cookies. They are easy, not too sweet and so delicious! They are a family favorite.

    I always made a shortbread cookie shaped like a candy cane. You tint half the dough red very cute. This year I found a recipe for cranberry shortbread stars. My son loves cranberries so will be trying these tomorrow.

    Shortbread for sure. Also, Christmas for me always meant Mom's Christmas Applesauce Cake (the Brits call it Christmas pudding), her brownies and her chocolate chip cookies. I know not everyone is a fan but she would use black walnuts in all three. They have a very different taste than a regular walnut. They really aren't something to eat out of the bag but rather a nut that, in my opinion, makes the treats I mentioned truly delicious!

    Candy cane cookies! I learned to make them in Jr. High Home Ec (the only thing I think I learned) and have made them every year since! You sprinkle them with crushed peppermint candy canes mixed with sugar when they come out of the oven. Yummy and cute! Candy Cane Cookies recipe from Betty Crocker

    The only cookie I make now-well for at least 5 years now-is Grandma Evert's Gingerbread Cookies. Funny story, when my son was about 5 we were cutting out the little men and he wanted to use the cookie cutter, could not seem to get an entire cookie so he called them bloody cookies, would decorate them with red frosting around the missing arms and legs. To this day we make a few of these. O.K., our family has a rather strange sense of humor.

    My grandsons will love this idea! (And my DD will so appreciate me sharing it with them, I'm sure.) It might be a better Halloween cookie than a Christmas cookie, though!

    Here's two of our favorites.......so yummy!


    Peanut Butter Puffs

    2 egg whites
    1/4 tsp of salt
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup peanut butter

    Beat egg whites with salt until soft peaks form.
    Adding sugar very gradually.......beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
    In separate bowl......beat peanut butter to soften.
    Fold peanut butter thoroughly into meringue.
    Drop by teaspoon 1 inch apart on greased or nonstick cookie sheet.

    Bake at 325 for 20 minutes of until lightly brown. Cool & remove from pan.
    Or eat them straight off the cookie sheet as fast as you pull them out of the oven!

    Note:This recipe is a small batch of cookies.
    We love this recipe but I always triple or quadruple the recipe so we will have enough! If for some reason the cookies do not puff up........it's okay......they still taste good.




    Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

    1 cup stick butter
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    2 tsp vanilla
    2 cups flour
    2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    12 oz bag of peanut butter chips

    Oven @ 350.
    Cream butter & sugar, eggs & vanilla until light & fluffy.
    Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda & salt.......then add to creamed mixture.
    Stir in chips.......recipe says to chill dough but I never do.
    Spoon onto ungreased or nonstick cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.

    Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen.
