'Tis the season for cookies

It's finally Christmastime!

Like many people, I look forward to the holiday season all year long, for one very important reason:

The cookies.

Oh man, I'm drooling just thinking about it: Sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, gingerbread men. Drop cookies, bar cookies, sandwich cookies. Square cookies, round cookies, thin cookies, fat cookies. Any cookies! I want to eat them all.

So, in the spirit of Christmas cookie-eating, we offer you tasty cookie recipes from our cooking blog, And All the Trimmings.

And, because it's the season of giving, I expect nothing in return.

(Although if you'd like to send me some snickerdoodles c/o The Tribune, I wouldn't object.)
