What’s your favorite holiday cookie? even if you haven’t tasted it in years, i’ll bet there’s a cookie that evokes a flood of warm holiday memories. growing up, my mom always made spritz during the holidays and, for me, their buttery almond flavor marks the true start of the holiday season. When choosing the recipes to include in this issue of betty crocker most requested recipes™, i couldn’t help but include two recipes for this traditional cookie. one is a scratch recipe; the other uses cookie mix as a shortcut. in fact, we’ve got 32 recipes that use cookie mix. some are variations on cookies you know and love; others are new and innovative ideas developed by winners from our mix it up with betty! cookie mix recipe contest. you won’t think of cookie mix the same way again. We’ve also devoted a chapter to cookies and bars perfect for gift giving. turtle shortbread cookies (p. 69) and toffee (p. 79) are just two of my favorites. lastly, we’ve compiled a chapter of recipes for little hands and big imaginations. snow-capped tree cookies (p. 89), chocolate teddy bear pops (p. 92) and candy cane Wands (p. 85) are sure to generate excitement in the kitchen. Who knows? you may wind up adding a new favorite to your (or someone else’s) list. happy holidays!
