It was easy coming up with this list of favorite cookies. The only problem we had was ranking them. From year to year, favorites change. This last Christmas, we just loved making and eating the Thumbprint cookies. Oatmeal Cookies were our biggest favorite during the summer as they are great when going on a lot of road trips. Oatmeal Cookies make a great snack and small meal substitute as well. Sugar Cookies are always good, and a necessity when you have a school-aged child. Follow these baking tips to get the perfect cookies every time.
