HOLIDAY COOKIES, RANKED.

Cookies that are always served at our family holiday gatherings.
  1. 1.
    Ladylocks
    I have heard them called lady fingers, but my Nana makes the best in the world and she calls them Ladylocks, so I default to her nomenclature. http://mindybakes.com/2012/12/29/pittsburgh-cookie-table-andor-holiday-cookie-table-ladylocks/ looks very similar to my Nan's but the creme (THE MOST IMPORTANT PART) is a little different.

    Sugar Cookies
    Here's the thing about sugar cookies, it's really all about the decorating. Which is cute! Don't get me wrong, but the actual cookie falls flat for me. I always want to like it, but I'm always disappointed.http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/sugar-cookies-recipe.html
