Monday. Oh yeah – I remember you now. You start the work week, right?

I don’t make this stuff up.

I wasn’t done staring into space and thinking about nothing yet.

What’s the best Christmas cookie?

  • No chocolate chips allowed.
  • Any comment about chocolate chips will be sent to the trash.

Do you suppose that a basement-stored 3 Liter bottle of Chanti from 1979 is still good?

  1. Kris Kringles – buttery citrus flavored dough, dipped in beaten egg, rolled in nuts, candied cherry on top (must alternate both red and green.

    I second the no-chocolate-chip rule.

  2. Snickerdoodles or good old buttery sugar cookies, sprinkled with green and red sugar. And not the store bought rolled kind. The real thing only.

    As for the Chianti, isn’t aging supposed to make it better?

  3. Gingerbread men! Gotta have them. Those little round cookies rolled in powdered sugar. Checkerboards and pinwheels (they’re a lot of work so only at Christmas). Anything with red and green candied cherries.

  4. I forgot Park Plaza Squares: a bar cookie with chopped Heath bars in the crust and a sweetened cream cheese layer on top.

    Those Lime Melt-a-Ways sound good. I looked up the recipe to try this year.

      • this is a bit off topic, but if you happen to like ice cream you simply must try Target’s Market Pantry brand “Cake and Sprinkles”. It saved me after the election. I’m even lactose intolerant but eat it anyway’s it is that amazing! Best ice cream on the planet. Proof that God still loves us!

  5. Spritz! Of course. But they have to be made correctly, with tons of butter, and powdered, not granulated, sugar. And no food coloring, dammit! Colored sugar lightly dusted. These are the ultimate.

  6. I’m a few days late but…You must try the Chianti and let us know. It has been long enough to have developed a secondary ferment and mellowing if it is going to stay good. If its not then you know and can toss it! At this moment I might say Sprtiz are my best Christmas cookie, but really having a variety is part of the fun. My husband says any that start with “Christmas” and end with “cookie” is his favorite.
