You're killing me too (but I love it). I used to make several dozen each of anywhere from 12-14 varieties of cookies every Christmas. I would make some of the same types every year, and then try some new recipes. I would choose a variety of recipes so that some were traditional Christmas kind, some ethnic varities, etc. Everyone who came over went home with a big platter or tin of cookies and where ever I went I brought cookies. I don't do that anymore. Everyone is so health concious these days plus we don't entertain like we used to.

I LOVE cookies but I am following WW.
I will not eat the cookies...I will not eat the cookies ex[hammer]

Fishlips, I used to make cookies like that too, 20-25 different kinds and give them to neighbors and family and send big trays to work with my husband. That was fine when he worked on the ambulances, but now he is a paramedic in corrections, and they stopped allowing them to bring in stuff like this. So I guess I just torture everyone else with the recipes ex[giggle] Sorry to make you all hungry for things that you can't have. I can, but really, really shouldn't, you know, that I'm not fat, I'm fluffy thing.
