I have been baking cookies for over forty years. We started giving baked goods for Christmas and Hannukah instead of store-bought over a dozen years ago. This snowballed and the last several holiday seasons before we sold our house we were baking 200 dozen cookies between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We would try to retire one recipe and start at least one new recipe every year. We would start trying out new recipes in September and I brought them to the PFT Lab and would have the technicians vote on them. These are our favorite recipes.
