Thinking about the holiday cookies

Thinking about the holiday cookies

It's early, but I'm already starting to think about the holiday cookie plates. I do large cookie plates every year for family and friends and coworkers. Here are this year's varieties, with explanatory notes where the cooky itself isn't familiar. -chocolate chip cookies -white chocolate macadamia nut -peanut butter -soft ginger cookies -snickerdoodles -oatmeal-raisin cookies -decorated sugar cookies in holiday shapes -brownies -lemon bars -spritz in holiday shapes -cashew triangles (shortbread topped with cashews and dark chocolate) -sugar cookies filled with raspberry filling and topped with white chocolate -candied orange and lemon peels for accents. I'd be interested to hear about other cookies other people do. I really like finding new recipes for cookies that you don't see every day.
