It's a tradition in our house to make a bunch of Christmas cookies.  Everything from iced sugar cookies, including Santa Claus with black boots, a request from husband, to Oreo chocolate truffles.

For years my daughter has helped ice the cookies. My husband and stepson just eat faster than I can bake.  There's something for everyone. The snicker-doodles are my step-sons favorite.  The sugar cookies and what we call haystacks, are my daughter and husband's favorites.  The buckeye bars and truffles are all mine.

Although the cookies are tasty, its more about the time spent in the kitchen as a family.  I haven't seen everyone that much since last Christmas.  And all it took was a few cookies.

What's your favorite Christmas treat?
