    We got your classic cut outs, some Mexican Wedding Cakes, and what we like to call Crack (toffee, crackers, chocolate and walnuts made into a bark). But I'm looking for new ideas this year. :) What kinds of cookies do your/your family make?

    I usually just make simple chocolate chip cookies. I want to try making gingerbread men though. We also have mince pies in the UK which are popular to make but I'm not keen on them.

    Oh dear you got me started; my family has a huge cookie exchange.

    Cut-Outs
    Peanut Butter Balls
    Snowballs
    Thumbprints
    Lady Locks
    Pizzelles
    Press Cookies
    Cheesecake Bites
    Chocolate Chip Cookies
    Pumpkin cookies
    And Hershey Kiss Cookies

    I am obsessed with cut out cookies. I refuse to share with people who dare say "eh, they're alright". Like, you're a waste of cookie. :giggle:

    They are!!! :bbq:

    Just remember, the cutouts are mine. You can have all the peanut butter balls and snowballs that you want though. We have a surplus of those.

    If I can find recipes I'll send them to you if you'd like. I have a thread on here somewhere of my favorites...

    This is not really a cookie but my Dad made his sticky toffee pudding this Christmas! It's a Scottish dessert that he found out about when he visited Scotland on business a long time ago. He learned to make it when he came back home and continues to make it once in a while for my family and me. As far as cookies go though, most of the time on Christmas he makes shortbread cookies or chocolate chip. So as you can tell he is the main cook/baker in the family. It is a really big hobby of his.
