Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies

I never "Got" Meringue Cookies until I tried a friend's! All those wasted years! Don't make that same mistake, make these NOW!

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas.” That song has been echoing in my mind. A little Christmas. A simple Christmas. I don’t know if I can hold onto that zen when I visit my daughter & the”littles” over the holidays, but I’m hanging on to that feeling now.

Gingersnaps

Gingersnap Cookies - these are the crispy ones! Old Fashioned but will win your heart!

I remember baking Gingersnap Cookies with my Mom. Kneeling on a chair at the kitchen table, it was always the job of us kids to take a glass (and the one we used had a little design on the bottom – it might have been one of Mom’s crystal glasses) dip it in sugar and gently press the cookies before baking.

Gingersnap Cookies - perfect for the Holiday.

Pumpkin Drop Cookies

Pumpkin Drop Cookies: Ya gotta love these simple yet delectable cookies that are stirred up with a spoon! Make raisin or chocolate chip.

When I was little, I have very fond memories of making cookies with my Mom. Well, she made them and we pressed the forks into them to make a cross-hatch – and they were always peanut butter. But at my friend Lynette’s house, they made all kinds of things! Including Pumpkin Drop Cookies.

Monster Cookies are one of those cookies that I’ve mostly had from an assortment of big bakery boxes of cookies that always seemed to show up around work or school functions. You know the beat: Chocolate Chip, maybe an Oatmeal Cookie and the Monster Cookie.

Bill’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

My very favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie - large and luscious!

I am a sucker for a really good, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie. In my opinion, just forget the apple pie; there’s probably nothing that says “American” quite like the chocolate chip cookie.
