Ten favorite Christmas cookies

Inspired by Carole knits

  1. Chewy molassas cookies – absolute top favorite that no one else habitually makes. I use the recipe from Cook’s Illustrated, which ensures properly chewy cookies.
  2. Hermits – which I like without all the nuts or dried fruit. I like the airyness of the cookie and the light touch of ginger flavor.
  3. Sugar cookies – no icing necessary
  4. Butter cookies – you know the ones found in the Danish tins?
  5. Gingerbread cookies – are you perchance getting a hint that I like the ginger flavor in my cookies.
  6. Snickerdoodles
  7. Chocolate chip is always good, IF they are chewy. (We are now moving into the I like them, but they are not true favorites. I don’t really have TEN favorites.)
  8. Same for double chocolate chip
  9. Sands (I think they are also known as Mexican wedding cookies)
  10. I don’t have another favorite cookie, but I do like the chocolate cookies with the cracked surface and sugar on top. I don’t know what their official name is.

I like cookies better than cake.
