Blog Tour: Christmas Cookies to Make and Give

Plateful of Christmas Cookies

Here are my favorite cookies I happened upon while out blog hopping today. What makes a cookie one of my faves?  Cookies that combine great ingredients like chocolate or fruit and cookies that look great with a minimum of fuss.  I also appreciate a cookie that freezes well, either before or after baking and cookies that look like difficult but are really easy.

Do you have a favorite cookie recipe or holiday treat you’d like featured here? Just leave your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by for a look.
