I bake these cookies every year around Christmas.I baked them today and my husband said that these are the best.We get together with my friend Susie and she bakes 4 kinds of cookies. I do the same and then we split them. So we have 8 different kinds of cookies in one day. When the kids come from school, it is a big surprise for them. Sometimes they help too.
