Since store shelves are starting to empty, I think we'll do this early this year so we can try to find the ingredients in stock for any new recipes wemay want to try.

If you decide to make these cookies, keep in mind it's written out as a quad batch. :)





We've done these cookies every year since I was a kid (well, I guess my mama did these cookies when I was a kid, and the rolling pin has been passed to me).  Sometimes I think I should do different kinds of cookies, but everyone that gets these loves them, so there's that.  I am thinking of trying a hot cocoa sandwich cookie with a marshmallow buttercream filling this year. We'll see.

I have many recipes but a few are favorites to those that receive them, so they’re made every year:

My three layer easy fudge recipe that I’ve kept bookmarked:
(I make this using peppermint oil vs mint extract b/c we all prefer that flavor. I also make a second batch with a fruit-flavor middle layer instead. I’ve done strawberry, cherry, raspberry variations.)

The chocolate chip cookie recipe I keep going back to:

Here’s a recipe I found on Betty Crocker website that I sub Candy Cane kisses in place of the Hugs to make them more holiday-ish:

Classic snickerdoodles:

That’s a start, at least...
Happy baking, friends!

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

I don't bake.  But my sister (Bopeep) does! Can't wait to try the sandwich cookies!

I think someone posted this in last year’s thread. They are our new favorite and so versatile. Try adding different liquors to the frostings for an adult tray.


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (7- or 8-oz size) almond paste

Vanilla Bonbon Frosting

1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Chocolate Bonbon Frosting

1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat all bonbon ingredients except almond paste with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until dough forms.
Cut almond paste into 1/4-inch slices; cut each slice into fourths. Shape 1-inch ball of dough around each piece of almond paste. Gently roll to form ball. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set and bottom is golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
For vanilla frosting, in small bowl, stir all Vanilla Bonbon Frosting ingredients until smooth.
For chocolate frosting, in small bowl, stir all Chocolate Bonbon Frosting ingredients until smooth. If necessary, stir in additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until soft enough to spread.
Dip tops of cookies into frostings and sprinkle with decors as desired.
