stop, its cookie time

We are planning a little cookie party this weekend. So far, I have a dozen recipes picked out, with a careful rationale behind the choice of each one. But I think making a dozen kinds of cookies seems a little crazy, right?

Here are a couple of things on my list (click photo or link to go to recipe): pecan biscotti (texture, crunch, pecans), peanut butter cookie (looks festive, also has no flour, so its good for the gluten-freers), peppermint marshmallows (not a cookie, but you have to put something in your hot chocolate), and chocolate chip (a cookie staple, thin and chewy)

What is your go-to holiday cookie? I love collecting new recipes.

PS- I have a very comprehensive cookie pinboard here.

    This post is very helpful! I have to go to 2 cookie exchanges in the next week and am not sure what to make. I am thinking of making no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies because people usually love those or a family recipe i have for chocolate peanut clusters (which arent technically cookies but they are usually a big hit!)

  2. Wow, I just love all of these.

  3. I just made some crunchy peppermint meringues from a Joy The Baker recipe. They’re awesome and fun, and a little different from what you’d normally find in a cookie swap! http://ovenandapron.com/2013/12/11/little-peppermint-meringues/
