These are a fovorite in my family. They have become my signature Christmas cookie and we look forward to them every year.

These are a new favorite in our house, and from coast to coast they have been a hit in our cookie-giving this Christmas season. I use half whole wheat flour and half regular, and everyone has loved them!

I love simple recipes!

Made this for the first time this week, it was so simple and delicious! With three young adults in the house, the cookies were gone in 2 days and all were asking when I would make them again.

I decided to try these for Christmas this past year...and they were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe.

Prize winners!

These are hands-down my favorite cookies! I have baked them for holiday cookie exchanges the past 2 years, and I'm sure the tradition will continue because everyone would be disappointed if I brought something else! They are AMAZING warm from the oven, but they are still delicious after a day or two. Irresistable!
