All the best cookie recipes in one convenient location! This tried-and-true list of family favorites covers all the bases for the most irresistible dessert platters, cookie swaps, bake sales, and holiday gift giving
As I was rifling through my recipe box several months ago, it occurred to me that there were many smudged and splattered index cards—time-honored recipes that had not yet made their way to the pages of the Fountain Avenue Kitchen.
A particular shortcoming was in the cookie department. I counted well over a dozen tried-and-true recipes, and it seemed only appropriate that I share those which had endured generations (along with a few newer additions) with my loyal readers.
Suffice it to say, I have baked dozens of batches of cookies over the last few months. I actually called in reinforcements (thanks Mom and Aunt Peggy!) to get the baking done for one particularly ambitious photo shoot.
As the scheduled day neared, it occurred to me that the notion of photographing 10 different cookies in one day may have been an overstep on my part. But we did it! Clearly, we take our holiday baking—and that of our readers—very seriously!
So along with my holiday elves, I am delighted to present all the best cookie recipes in one convenient location. This tried-and-true collection of family favorites covers all the bases for the most irresistible dessert platters, cookie swaps, bake sales, and holiday gift giving.
If you have a favorite cookie recipe that you think should be on this list, by all means share it. I plan on adding to this collection over time and would be delighted to try the cookie recipes that have stood the test of time in your family!
