Christmas cookies

I love the smell of cookies baking!

Each year at Christmas we make lots of cookies.
Many of them are for Ron's English students,
some of them are for church,
others are for any Christmas parties we attend,
and of course, we need to keep some at our house......just because it's Christmas.
After smelling the delicious aromas of cookies baking, it's only natural to want to taste them too.

This was my first year to try Cinnamon Stick Cookies.  I was very pleased!  They were pretty simple, made lots, and were not real sweet.  Perfect to munch on while sipping coffee, tea, or cocoa.

 Minty Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are a big hit with everyone.  They are delicious!!!  These are definitely on our family's list of Christmas cookies to make each year.  In fact, I probably won't wait until next Christmas to make them again.

Snowballs are another favorite with our family and anyone who tries them.  Sometimes I wish everyone didn't like them so much....then there would be more for me.  On January 2, Ron and I were watching some football (about 11:30 p.m.) and I remembered that there were 3 Snowball cookies left.  The perfect snack while watching the game.  They were so yummy....too bad there were only 3.

You can find the recipes for these cookies here.

 The traditional Sugar Cookies not only taste good, but are lots of fun to decorate.  Last year we started "painting" our icing on with paint brushes.  It's much easier than a knife for younger kids and more fun too (even for older kids).  I mix up different colors of frosting, stick paint brushes in the bowl, and set out sprinkles.  All the kids (5-12 years old) and I have a blast.  This year daddy even painted some cookies. 

What are your favorite cookies to make?
