  1. Kim says

    Is there really a bad cookie?

    I think not! But my favorite would be something with chocolate in it, or chocolate chips.

  2. Jayne Homsher says

    When I make cookies and eat cookies I want sweet treats that inspire me to want to keep baking away! Love to give cookie gifts throughout the year!

  3. Diane Claudio says

    The Orange Crinkle Cookies are delicious, Light, & a nice change from the regular chocolate & sugar cookies. I Love Them!

  4. Melissa says

    I love almost all cookies. I, do however, feel that cranberries, raisins, or basically anything that falls into the berry category does not belong in a cookie. My favorite cookies have both chocolate and some form of nuts in them. The chocolate caramel cashew cookies listed above sound delicious. I might just have to go make some.

  5. Helen Charbonneau says

    CHocolate Covered Marshmellows called church windows because they are made with colored marshmellow in a row than sliced. You have a great many choices with this row powder sugar, coconut, nuts.

  6. Carol Yemola says

    I absolutely love a soft vanilla or sugar cookie with a light confectioner sugar icing. Yummy with ice cold milk!

  7. Anita Cornetto says

    I love brown sugar shortbread and pecan crescents, but I can’t wait to try those cashew cookie bars…they look yummy!

  8. Sonya Wiren says

    Some great cookies/recipes posted here. It was hard but I had to go with the Chocolate Caramel Concoctions (15). What an interesting variety of flavors and texture!

  9. Mikki Lewis says

    The reindeer cookies are *adorable* and the ones that stole my heart! I hope they win!!! Now, gotta get the stuff to make some soon!

  10. Dot Harkleroad says

    Orange Crinckle Cookies have got to b my favorite out of these..but nothing beats a good and chewy warm chocolate chip

  11. NaDell says

    I’m not that big of a fan of ginger cookies, but made some last week and they were so great! They were a recipe very similar to the one linked. They are my husband’s favorite.

  12. Deborah says

    I love mexican wedding cookies, peanut butter cookies, and shortbread. Nothing beats fresh hot cookies with icy cold milk just about anytime of the year.

  13. Carole Parsons says

    I have always loved peanut butter cookies so I always try new recipes. but I still like the ones I made as a kid.

  14. Margie Menke says

    In Junior high I learned to make Cherry Winks. Cherries corn flakes and the reg stuff. A soft and delicious cookie, I still love them.

  15. Teresa Laraia says

    I always like different things, so that being said I’d choose the Irish Soda Bread Cookie. This looks like a good coffee cookie and not overly sweet ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Tari Millis says

    I am a chocoholic so I love just about any cookie that has chocolate in it. Chocolate no-bakes are my favorite though.

  17. Kelley Van Den Broek says

    Rum Balls mmmm they are the best. I love the different flavouring in my mouth. I make sure I have these on at christms!

  18. Pamela Wrona says

    Number 9 — the Sandbakkels. I am a big fan of any kind of shortbread cookies and these look so pretty with the special shape!

  19. Brunella Brunet says

    soft eggnog cookies look sooo good. would love to win a copy of the cookie cookbook. Thanks for the chance. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  20. Kristina Howden says

    I absolutely want to try to bake these eggnog cookies they are new to me! They sound awfully terribly good! Me eat cookies like cookie monster…

  21. Cheryl Goldman says

    I love cookies! Good old Toll House, aka Chocolate Chip, cookies are my favorites! Here I voted for the candy cane hearts because they look so yummy and are so very very cute! Happy Holidays!

  22. Betty Yell says

    My favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin, choc chip, walnut . I will be making the soft eggnog cookies as these are some of my favorite flavors.

  23. Jessica says

    Great links for all the cookies. Cant wait to start baking. Have to get Santas cookies ready. My vote was for the Hazelnut YUM!

  24. alyce poalillo says

    CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT SHORTBREAD COOKIES would be my favorite of these but I love plain old chocolate chip all year

  25. John McNeely says

    I’m sorry the Cinnamon Bun Sugar Cookies have to be the winner. I mean really Cinnamon has to be the best spice ever. Cinnamon rolls, oatmeal raisin cookies have cinnamon, amish friendship bread, cinnamon gum. What’s not to like.

  26. Karen says

    I voted for the cinnamon bun cookies here, but I also like any cookie with chocolate- chips, chunks, I love them all.

  27. Peggy says

    I voted for the Cherry Blossom Cookie. It was a tie between this one and the Cinnamon Bun Sugar cookies, but the chocolate kiss won!

  28. Ellen says

    I love bar cookies and when they have my favorite ingredients of caramel, chocolate, and cashew nuts, then it is the winner for me.

  29. Karen Hill says

    Rum Balls are delicious! That is what I voted for. My favorite cookie that I make for the holidays every year is a Chocolate Pepper Nut. It is a chocolate spice cookie that is iced. A different flavor…yum.

  30. selma says

    I am an old fashioned cook that loves cooking from scratch. My grandmothers, and father were excellent cooks and I learned from the best. The old fashioned sour cream sugar cookies are the most favorite during any holiday with my grandchildren and we have a wonderful time 3 generations of us decorating them. I wish my dad and mom were still alive to enjoy it, but they are in a better place. They are together and happy.

  31. says

    I voted for the rum balls! They just look so cute! and after all, it is a celebration!
    Keep up the great work!! I’m going to try to make some of these recipes… like the Irish soda bread and rum balls… it was really hard to decide which to vote for…:)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

  32. Constance says

    I voted for number 12 Cherry Blossom Cookies. I host a Cookie Swap every year so I made these last year and everyone absolutely loved them. They wanted me to make them again this year but I made another Cookie. This is my 6th year for the Swap so I would REALLY LOVE the Cookie Book!

  33. Sandy V. says

    I would like the Cashew Cookie bars. My favorite type of cookie involves nuts like cashews or macadamia nuts. I then like chocolate chips or butterscotch chips added to it.

  34. Pam says

    Home-made chocolate chip cookies with walnuts are generally my favorites, but the orange crinkle cookies on this contest really caught my eye.
