There are these Amaretti cookies from an Italian bakery in the town where I grew up that I HAVE to eat when I am back visiting around the holidays. They are harder on the outside and moist and cake-like on the inside with an almond flavor. There is also a candied cherry on top. Yummmmm….

LOVE the ones with a hersey kiss or peanut butter cup smooshed in.  Also love the snowflake looking ones (I think pizzelle or something?).  And the simple white meringue ones or the peanut buttery ones covered in chocolate…I could go on for awhile!!

When I was growing up, every year my mom would make sugar cookies shaped like different holiday things like reindeers and santas and then sprinkle green and/or red sprinkles on them. Very simple but they epitomize holiday cookies to me. Those and Russian tea cakes!

Mine are a little unusual – they’re called Jan Hagel. My Nana got the recipe from her German neighbor when she moved here from Scotland they’re amazing and people are always impressed by them. It’s basically a sugar cookie recipe doubled & spread out in a sheet pan – sprinkle cinnamon sugar and almonds on top bake & cut it on a diagonal when it’s still warm.

Mexican Wedding Cakes have always been my favorite since I was a kid. Even better that they are so simple and easy to make.

@Dancy, that looks delicious and my husband loves almonds.  Do you have a recipe?

These almond cookies my mom makes. They’re super buttery! And shortbread. I like dense cookies with lots of butter! The almond cookies aren’t like Dancy’s, but they’re amaaaaazing! Yankee Candle has a candle that smells JUST like them!

@ bvig they’re the easiest things in the world – I literally make a double batch recipe of sugar cookies  (I tried it once with a shortbread recipe too), spread it out in a sheet pan and cover it with cinnamon sugar & almonds (sometimes an egg wash helps it stick to the dough), throw it in the oven for 20m or until it’s starting to turn brown, then when it’s still warm, but not too hot I take a pizza cutter and cut it into little diamonds. When I’m lazy I don’t even make the dough – I use a couple of the sugar cookie tubes that you buy in the grocery store. LOL
