Hi, this is Leslie Harris. Have you started your holiday baking yet? A friend of mine makes hundreds of cookies and started a couple of weeks ago! I mean, it wasn’t even Thanksgiving yet!

I like to bake, but I never seem to have enough time to bake as many cookies as I would like.

We have three standard cookies that cannot go unbaked during our holiday season –  seven layer bars, peanut blossoms, and almond crescents. The Almond crescents go way back in my family. It’s an almond shortbread cookie, and I remember as a kid, we had to make a rule that no one could eat the dough, because we would eat so much dough that there wouldn’t be enough left for cookies!

Are you making this year? Have you started? Or are you just a cookie-consumer?

What is your favorite holiday cookie?
