Living in the town of North Pole, it's no surprise that Heather Peters enjoys Christmas baking! "My mom and I used to make these cookies together," she recalls. "Now that I am married and living in Alaska, I love to bake them for my own family. They remind me of home!"
These wonderful cookies require a bit of extra effort to make and assemble, but the delight on the faces of family and friends when I serve them makes it all worthwhile. —Schelby Thompson, Camden Wyoming, Delaware
This specialty cookie takes a little extra effort, but the delectable results are well worth it. I bake the tender jam-filled hearts when I need something fancy to serve for Valentine's Day or other special occasions. —Jane Pearcy, Verona, Wisconsin
