Honey Cookies - Soft and moist cut out cookie passed down from my Great Great Grandmother. The appearance is soft and puffy, and the cookie itself is not too sweet. The cream cheese frosting adds to the overall flavor but doesn't hide the good honey taste. Decorate these cookies for your favorite holiday!

Sugar Plum Cookies - Let these sugar plum cookies dance in your mouth. They are really soft and delicious. A very unique Christmas cookie.

Easy Gingerbread Cookies - A fun way to get into the holiday season: let the kids help with the cookie cutter and then decorate! Also make edible tree ornaments!

Double Chocolate Anise Cookies - These cookies are chocolaty and chewy with a taste of anise. Delicious and perfect for Christmas!

Candy Cane Cookies - Perfect for holiday time, these cookies look gorgeous on a platter! Pick a time to do these cookies when you're feeling creative and have patience. They're very yummy!

Pecan Pie Cookies - If you love the taste of pecan pie, try this more portable dessert alternative.

Buttery Sugar Cookies - This dough is easy to work with - it has no baking powder - so the cookies bake smooth and flat - without any small bumps. It makes decorating easier.

Peanut Butter Dreams - This is a favorite Christmas cookie. Not only does it taste great but looks like a fancy cookie.

Fruit Cake Cookies - These bring me memories of my Grandmother, she made them every Christmas and the smell in her home while they were baking always makes me feel warm inside. I hope you enjoy them as much as we always did.

Marbled Shortbread - This delicious shortbread looks beautiful on a cookie tray! I make it every Christmas, and everyone loves it! With shortbread, homemade caramel and marbled chocolate, it reminds me of a Twix candy bar.

Decadent Mint Cookie Cups - I created this recipe to enter in a contest at the state fair, where it won a blue ribbon. These cookies take a little time to make, but the results are worth it!

Mrs. Field's Eggnog Cookies - The perfect holiday cookie to get everyone in a festive mood!

Persimmon Christmas Cookies - Try this fruity twist on a classic spice cookie this holiday season.

Orange Pecan Butter Cookies - These cookies have a delicious combination of orange, pecans and chocolate!

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies - These cookies have the gingerbread taste, but are not best for cookie cutter gingerbread men. Still delicious, but perhaps not as exciting for the little ones.
