Day Seven: Cookies!

So today I am thankful for Christmas cookies.

When I was looking at my to-do list of Thanksgiving, I thought that Christmas cookies would be a great idea.  Now, I don't really know if I would feel up to making cookies that weekend (we are hosting Thanksgiving again this year) or if I would able to get in that extra Christmas cookie shopping, but a girl can wish, right?

So here are some ideas I have for my special Christmas cookie box.

Chocolate Biscotti

Peanut Blossoms

(Martha Stewart makes a mean snickerdoodle. And I was told by Jesse I never make them)

Fluer de Sel Caramels
(Been dying to make these)

Espresso truffles

Also on the "maybe" list are hoosier bars, chocolate crinkles, peanut butter balls, run or bourbon balls, and candy cane cookies.

I'm not going to make them all (and I'm not going to be making 5 different kinds of chocolate or peanut butter cookies) but I thought those would be a good starting point.

What are your favorite Christmas cookies?
