It's the Season for Baking Cookies and Shortbread

Each year around Christmas we have a neighbor who comes to the door with a dish of delicious cookies that she bakes, a wonderful variety. 

Personally, I am not much of a baker, maybe because I don't eat a lot of sugar or pastries, but do make up for it during the holidays. 

Our family's traditional cookie is Scotch Shortbread, a simple recipe, something my grandmother did each year, and then my mother, and now me. I have my butter, flour and sugar ready and waiting to to bake some delicious, rich, shortbread cookies. What is your favorite cookie for the holiday season? Please feel free to share. 

I did a page on "Wizzley" about our Shortbread Cookies called Grandma's Scotch Shortbread Recipe. Can't wait to see how this years batch will taste.
