OK, I know I'm jumping ahead a bit but what’s your favorite Christmas or holiday cookie? We all love holiday foods no matter what you celebrate. So what cookie is your all time favorite? Why? Does it bring back memories?

Angel cookies is my fave. My grandmother would hand make these every year when I was little. I loved getting all messy with the powder sugar. To me it brings back a happier time when I was little and my mother was still alive. I tried making these cookies myself recently but all I made was a HUGE mess instead! lol I don't know how my Gma did it. :)

We used to make sugar cookie dough, but then color 3 different bowls, one red, one green, and leave the other natural color..... Then take a small amount of each color and roll it between your hands to make a long rope, then twist the 3 colors together and shape as a candy cane....and of course the frosting is peppermint. I remember making them as kids and they were fun.... Now they are just messy.

Jam Shortbread cookies are my absolute favorite!!!  They are sooooooooooo yummy and I make them at Christmas time.  People get hooked on them.  The flavor is out of this world..  The secret is cream of tartar in the batter and I make them with a cookie gun and strawberry preserves.  After they are baked, I sprinkle powdered sugar on them.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I love every cookie that ever crumbled.
I cannot stay away from sweets.
I am truly an addict when it comes to candy, cookies, ice cream, cake ... etc.
I will either eat them all or hurry them over to neighbor's home when I get a gift.
Sometimes I've tossed them down the disposal.
When I was working, I used to get maybe three boxes of See's chocolates every
Xmas. One time I took a tiny bite of each, and the rest went down the disposal.
I cannot cannot have sweets in my house.
When my kids were little I used to gain about 5 pounds at Halloween.
Booo Hoooo.
Pamela Neckpain is glad she doesn't love alcoholic drinks. nono
