Today's Question: What's your favorite Christmas Cookie?
I love to bake! I can remember my Easy Bake Oven with the lightbulb that cooked the little chocolate cakes! How funny! My mom and I use to make lots of different shaped cookies using a 1970's cookie press… that would always turn into a pretend gun for my brother… we made the little green christmas trees with a cherry on top… the shortbread scotties and lots of frosted cut out sugar cookies.
I continued the tradition of baking christmas cookies with my kids…. below is a photo of Veronica and Ray making gingerbread cookies… that's one of my favorites. But my all time favorite is the chocolate cookie sandwiched with vanilla frosting and sprinkled with bits of peppermint candy canes…. made each year by my that my sister-in-law Gail ! Sooo delicious!
Some of you know that my husband Dean is just finishing up his first semester in Culinary Art School and he had to take Baking 101! And if you know Dean, the only thing he knew how to bake before this class was bread. But his skills in baking have soared and he's really getting the hang of it…. I should show you the photos of the delicious apple pies, double layer chocolate mousse cake, cinnamon rolls and so much more!
So today's question is …. What's your favorite Christmas Cookie and if you have a cookie recipe to share … we would love to try out some new recipes!

I love cookies but this is an easy one. My all time favorite is a Norwegian cookies called a Love Knot. It is a very rich button cookies, rolled out to about a 8 inch long piece, about the size of your index finger. Simply tie the ends in a knot, dip in beaten egg white and bake. It comes out shiny and very, very rich! Now you can do this with your children. Here's the recipe: http://www.grouprecipes.com/80811/norwegian-love-knots.html
