More Holiday Cookies!

After a disastrous attempt to revisit friends in Las Vegas for the holidays, I salvaged the Sunday morning prior to Christmas with a visit to my pal Deb Kirch, bearing a bag of gifts. In return, I was bestowed a bounty of cookies. w00t!

Chocolate Mint Cremes. Chewy, chocolatey, just enough peppermint to complement the chocolatey flavor.
Festive Fudge Blossoms. Crisp, nutty, good cocoa flavor.
Oatmeal Cranberry Toffee. Chewy, sweet, pocketed with crisp bits. A personal favorite.
Peanut Butter Spritzes. Unique crumbly texture, even a tad fragile. Not for dunking.
Spritzes. Moister and less crumbly than P.B. variety. Cinnamon candy star adds a zip.
Mexican Wedding Cakes, also known as Russian Teacakes. Nutty, lightly sweet. A perfect cookie for tea.
Chocolate Chip. America's favorite cookie, year round. Crisp, as it should be.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. Technically not a cookie. Sensuous raw cookie dough texture and flavor. Sugar crystals crunch softly with each chew.
BONUS! Candy! Caramel Pecan Clusters. With a chocolate drizzle it's a triple threat praline!
More Candy! Peanut Butter Balls. Study, but delicate. Melts in your mouth!
