Terrific Holiday Cookie Recipes myspace graphic comments

Ah the Holidays.  A time for Family, Friends and Cookies!!

This year we started a new tradition in my house.  Everyone who came over Christmas Day needed to bring cookies (enough to share with everyone) and then we had a mini cookie swap.  There were 12 of us this year, so we had a nice variety!!

Here are some delicious cookie recipes I have found and been sent from friends.  I am already planning for a Christmas in July cookie swap, and for next Christmas!!
