    You are so sweet….I wish I was local so I could stop by. Would you have a recommendation on what type of cookie or candy travels well/stays freshest for shipping? With priority mail, you can get it there in two days, which is pretty quick, but I still want it to be the freshest it can be. Do you think the caramel shortbread would work for that? Thanks so much in advance!

      Joanna, Fudge is always a good choice for traveling and staying fresh. The cookie barks and candy barks are also great for that. I think the caramel shortbread would work well too. Have fun!

    I don’t think the 20th is too late…I’m doing all of mine the next day with all of my nieces. (Having all boys, I look forward to spending time with the girls!) Love all of these cookies you gathered up! I think I have to admit I am addicted to cookies. Period! I love everything about them…baking, decorating, and of course, eating them! Sharing… (=

    Love to bake. Always looking for new recipes. The chocolate crinkle and butter-mint drop should be scrumptious and great fun!
