    Photo replay: My Saturday, for Sunday

    My main accomplishment yesterday:

    Spritz cookies! Nearly 300 of 'em, in fact.

    All for today as it's once again our annual family Cookie Swap.

    Bring on the baked goods!

    Today's question:

    What's your favorite holiday cookie you make and your favorite holiday cookie someone else makes?

    I love your cookies. I can remember my real mother having a cookie press and making those when I was little. But our favorites are the awesome Christmas cookies my (step) Mom makes. We've all tried making them but they never turn out as good as hers do! Some years she sends a big box from Michigan -- Jenna never wants to share. She claims they are all hers! My favorite cookie to make is "Cherry Garcia Cookies" with chopped cherries, white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts! Good thing we are making monkey bread this morning because now I really want/NEED sugar!

    My favorite to mske takes forever, beint cut-outs decorated with Christmas themes but are, to me, necessary for a Christmas Cookie Swap. My favorite that someone else makes are Lisa's, pictured above.

    Oh how I fondly remember your family cookie swap! That was so much fun! My favorite cookie to make is peanut butter/chocolate chip. My favorite cookie someone else makes is actually a Christmas candy. I call it a Haystack. It's chocolate and coconut. YUMSSS

    Yummy! I love to make frosted sugar cookies and snicker doodles. I love my mom's toll house cookies and butter balls and Lisa's spritz cookies!

    I've never met a cookie I didn't love. My favorite is all of them.

    I would love to attend a cookie swap if I wasn't trying to avoid eating them this time of year! Your cookies look great!
