Advent Calendar: Christmas Cookies

It's the annual Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories!  I've participated the past four years (2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012), but this year, there are some new prompts, and the sequence has changed for some old prompts used in previous years.  For the latter, in some cases I'll simply re-post, while in others, I will link to the older posts, and - when applicable - post about something else that's at least somewhat related.

The prompt for today is:  December 14 – Christmas Cookies.

Any other time of the year, a cookie is a cookie – even homemade ones. But during Christmas, well a cookie is a special treat. Whether it is a Snickerdoodle or a Peanut Butter Blossom or perhaps decorated Spritz cookies, we all have special memories about Christmas cookies.
Tell us about your favorite Christmas cookie (and share a recipe please!) as well as your memories of Christmases past.

MMM, cookies!  Recipes for three of my favorites, and a picture of one of them (Pecan Puffs) are in my posts for this prompt for 2009, 2010, and 2011The Chocolate Swirl cookies are pictured in my 2012 post, in some of my collection of decorative holiday tins.  Here's a picture of the Lemon Bars:

  1. Lemon bars are my favorite, wish I could reach in the screen and take one...

    1. My youngest step-grandson loves these too - gets aggravated with me when I don't make them! Thank you for commenting, Claudia!
