What's your favorite Christmas cookie?

This is the time of year where everyone pulls out their traditional Christmas cookie recipes (or at least I do) and bake for their friends. What's your favorite? Share the recipe if you'd like!
Mine would be Holiday Sugar Cookies. This is a bit painstaking because you make the dough up then refrigerate it for a while then you have to roll it out on the cutting board into your favorite shapes. I cheat and use the canned Pillsbury buttercream frosting though. I just add my different food colorings to mix it up a bit. Top with green and red M&M's or your favorite sprinkles. It's a fun thing to do with my daughters!

Best holiday cookie agreed Pocs . But never knew it was so much work. Around here a fav are Moravian Cookies - but those are bought -not home made.

So please share your recipe? Are they cruchy or a bit crunch-chewy?

I like baking cookies at this time of year, not only the traditional sugar cookies, but I enjoy trying new recipes. This year I am making biscotti and trying my hand at homemade marshmallows. I will let you know how this turns out!!!

I'm with Isaac, my favorite is the classic sugar cookie, simple and sweet. Although I have been known to eat CC with nuts, but that isn't very Christmas-ish.....

I like them soft!
Here goes...
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
4 c. flour sifted
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, mix well. Add vanilla. Mix in flour, sifted with salt and baking powder....it will get thick. Refrigerate 1 hour. Roll out dough on a floured cutting board about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with your favorite cookie cutters. Bake on Pam sprayed cookie sheet at 350 for about 10 mins. If you want them crunchy let them brown a little. Decorate with frosting when cool! Enjoy!

I like my sugar cookies a little crunchy on the edges and a little soft in the middle.....and decorated in pink stilettos! Or maybe even a Indian feather headdress!
