When I was young, I could hardly wait for the holidays because I knew these rich cookies would make an appearance on the cookie tray. Now I make them for holidays throughout the year. —Fred Grover, Lake Havasu City, Arizona
Before I was married, my future father-in-law would fix these creamy caramels at Christmas and send me some. The recipe has been in my husband's family for decades...so, when we got married, I learned to make them, too.
“I was afraid if I frosted cookies to give for gifts at Christmastime, they would stick together when stacked in tins,“ relates Sherry Lee of Columbus, Ohio. “So I came up with this idea to use a foam stamp to create an indented design for the frosting. They’re so easy!”
For a truly luxurious cookie experience, try these slightly sweet and tender morsels. Two varieties of coconut—sweetened and unsweetened—and cream of coconut add intense flavor to every nibble. —Robin Jungers, Cambellsport, Wisconsin
Every Christmas for over 30 years, I have rolled, cut, shaped and baked batches cookies for family and friends. These melt-in-your-mouth morsels with a dollop of chocolate in the center are among my favorites.—Jim Ries, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
