I like baking, but for some reason I really only do any baking during the holidays. But when I do bake during the holidays, I love to make cookies! They're simple and fun, and generally speaking everyone likes them. They don't require a fork or plate (unless something has gone horribly wrong!) and are easy to serve at parties and work potlucks.
This year, on her website, Paula Deen is doing the 25 Days of Holiday Cookies! If you're not from the US you may not know who Paula Deen is, but I promise that she is fabulous, and you should totally check out her website each day for a new cookie recipe!
What's your favorite thing to bake (or cook) during the holidays?
