    This may be a cop-out, since they’re not *really* holiday cookies, but snickerdoodles have always been my favorite this time of year. I never make them for myself and they always show up at holiday parties, so I always associate them with the holidays. :)

  2. Carly Kreger says

    Snickersnaps/Gingerdoodles! (I prefer “snickersnaps” because it has a bit more a pop and it’s much more fun to say.) It is literally a combination of snickerdoodle dough and gingersnap dough all mixed together and rolled in cinnamon-sugary deliciousness. Alone, each of these cookies seems to lack that something special for me, but together = AMAZEMENT! And bonus: Everyone loves them, from gap-toothed toodlers, to negative-nancy coworkers, and even tradition-rooted seniors. You cannot go wrong with this cookie hybrid!

  3. Leslie says

    My absolute favorite is spritz cookies with almond flavoring, but I haven’t been able to find a good cookie press that works. Maybe this is the one that will work for me.

  4. jaclyn says

    I’m Italian and growing up my mom made tons of different kinds of Italian cookies each holiday season. My favorite by far, is the Venetian (sometimes called “rainbow cookie”) it’s delicious….almond paste….jam….dark chocolate. yum. they are kind of hard to make but totally worth it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Catherine says

    I love Paula Trombi’s apricot bars; my Mom and I have made them every Christmas since before I can remember!

  6. Audrey says

    Peanut butter cookies are my traditional favorite, but I just saw a recipe on Pinterest for white chocolate chip and crushed peppermint cookies and they sound Amazing!

  7. jeri says

    They may not be a holiday cookie, but if my gift tins don’t include Toll House chocolate chips, I hear about it. That’s fine with me since they’re my favorite too.

  8. BrendaB says

    I love Christmas cookies so much that it’s difficult to pick my favorite …. but I’ll probably go with a sugar cookie with cream cheese in the dough, iced of course!

  9. Dana says

    My grandma make almond thumbprint cookies every year for the holidays and they are my absolute favorite. We live many states apart now and she still mails some to me. They show up in a million pieces but I eat every piece and think about my grandma.

  10. Katie says

    My dad used to have one of those cookie guns! It was his specialty during the holidays.

    I myself am a bit biased towards good ol’ roll-out sugar cookies. So many good memories attached to cutting them out and then decorating them with my brother. :)

  11. Firehazard says

    I want to try all kinds of new recipes this season, but I think peanut butter with peanut butter chips will always be my favorite!

  12. Renee says

    I ADORE Gingerbread Frosted Cookies, especially the ones from Trader Joe’s. They are very, very, dangerous to have around the house! And for the non-holidays, you can beat the Pecan / Hazelnut Sandies!!

  13. Fleur says

    I love gingerbread cookies. And, snickerdoodles. And, sugar cookies. Oh, and, peanut butter blossoms. Oh, and…. yeah, I’ll just take the whole plate.

  14. kim says

    my favorite cookies are the little cheap tin cookies you can get at christmas every year! with milk! yum. i’d like to have this press to make my own! yum!!! :)

  15. Anne with an E says

    My Mom’s Fruit Cake Cookies. Much better than the cake version, and my cousins fight over them making the cookies that much more special :)
