Sugar Cookies (not the really pretty kind:) since we have always decorated them)
Date Squares ( no one really fights over these)
Peanut Butter Blossoms (added by request by us kids)
All really cool cookies, but even with pressure from us kids they never have strayed far from their traditions. So back to the two years ago thing where I was a mother of just one really easy 2 year old, ahhh.... I saw a blog post with a ton of link ups to people's favorite Christmas recipes. We picked a few new ones, most of them were more like candy and gave it a try! Some were a hit and others well won't be redone.
My favorite was a toffee recipes that was so simple and delicious, you can check it out here.
If you have a favorite kind of cookie, please post it in the comment section and even link up a recipe if you like. I need new ideas, so would love to hear what you like best. Plus I can't just make toffee and that saltine sugary stuff, we'll need cookies this year!
