My moms recipe for our annual Christmas cookies growing up. I make this ever year with my kids as a starter mix and we make four cookies from it. I’ve added the original photos from the magazine from the 70’s. Read More

This really helped simplify my xmas cookie baking for a pot luck. From this recipe I made 4 of the cookie types all were good I reviewed each seperately. I had about 8 dozen cookies in 2 hrs! I will use this again and tweak the individual recipes to correct some problems. Read More

This dough is DELICIOUS! It is so quick and it tastes great straight out of the bowl. I used it as the base for the make ahead toffee bars. Exactly what I was looking for to give as holiday gifts! Thank you Lynn. Read More

Very easy to use. I'm not sure how it fares in the fridge for up to 4 weeks though as I used the batch I made the same day. I made several of the other "Make Ahead" recipes and most of them turned out just great. Making the mix and then using it for several of the different cookie recipes sure makes it easy to bake a few different types of cookies easily-would be a huge help at the holidays! Read More
