    I am hosting a cookie exchange this Friday and I think I just found my cookie 🙂

  2. Hostess-ing a Christmas hoo-ha Sunday evening, and I still need to decide on sweets for the evening. Any experience freezing these? (As I have tons to do between now and Sunday eve 😉 . ) Anything make ahead at this point would be amaaaaaazing.

    • Oh Donna, the best freezing cookies recipe I am posting isn’t until next week. As far as these go … I have never frozen them, so I don’t know. I am sorry.

      Ann

      • What do you mean the ‘best freezing’ cookies are next week? Haha…just joking. I guess we didn’t communicate on my social obligations, huh? No big deal… I’m working on the main courses. Fortunately, the hubby likes to bake, so he’s kind of got that going (I think). I did make some fudge today – I know it will freeze. I was curious also because I myself LOVE lemon and have all these fresh lemons ready to fall off the tree – must use them!!!

        • It was stupid on my part, Donna – they should have been scheduled first so they could have been ummm, frozen, and the delicate, last minute cookies scheduled last.

          If you do freeze them, please let me know how they turned out after thawed!

          • Hey hey hey….I was kidding, you know that!! Nothing stupid!! 🙂
            I have done some reading about these type tho’ and it seems it should work, it’s just suggested you roll them in the confectioner’s sugar after you unthaw. Moisture from freezing them will allow it to stick….make sense to you? I’m not that much of a baker…

            • It does make sense, Donna. Unlike many cookies of this type (Mexican wedding cakes for instance), you take them off the cookie sheet hot and roll immediately. I wonder if you will have to warm them a minute when thawed, or if the confectionery sugar will stick immediately when thawed?

  3. Yummm, these look like they will look…and taste… just great on my Christmas cookie list! Tks for posting.
