The original version of this recipe was handed down from my great-aunt. Through the years, my mother and I have tried different flavor combinations...this is a favorite for all. —Brenda Keith, Talent, Oregon
I bake cookies all year long, so my friends and family call me the "Cookie Lady"! Whenever I bake these for Christmas, I make three batches...one to keep at home for my husband and two to give as gifts.
BRIMMING with fancy flavors, these Chrstmasy treats will keep tasty pace with a stocking birthday party—or any other December get-together! Crafting Traditions' cooks got their idea off the ground by arranging tender meringue into a delectable set of sock-shaped shells. Finally—for a taste-tickling finish—our kitchen staff spread the confections with both tangy cranberry and sweet cream cheese fillings. Simply follow the step-by-step directions for the desserts here. In no time, you'll be sweeping folks of their feet!
Shirley Kidd started making these treats after tasting a batch her friend whipped up. "I immediately requested the recipe and have been baking them by the dozens ever since," she enthuses from her home in New London, Minnesota. "The icing is an ideal complement to the tart berries in the cookies."
