Christmas Cookies Galore

Christmas time is the perfect excuse to bake up tons of cookies and not feel guilty about it. This year I made classic sugar cookies (not pictured because we haven't decorated them yet), peanut butter blossoms, gingersnaps, double-chip pecan (use this recipe and add in peanut butter chips and pecans), lemony slice & bakes, bourbon balls, butterscotch blondie bars and double chocolate peppermint surprises. I made a bunch of the dough ahead of time and put it in the freezer. Yesterday all we had to do was defrost the dough and put the cookies in the oven. I think I will use that strategy again, since it was virtually no mess and no stress. The surprise hit... lemony slice and bakes. Everyone was raving! What are your favorite Christmas cookies?
