Oh good Lord!!! Those all look FANTASTIC!!
And, did you see the link for the Hazelnut Nutella sandwich cookies in the little box up in the right hand corner of the page? My daughter would love those.

Ooh, the JT mudslides especially sound good. Thanks for the links. Can’t wait to hear who wins the contest.

Hi Anna,

I want to ship cookies to my friend overseas for Christmas. Do you have any tips for shipping cookies and any recommendations for the type of cookie that ships well? (Crispy? Chewy? Bar cookies?)

I just bookmarked the Hazlenut Cookies. Those look wonderful, can’t wait to try them.

Hi Anna,
I finally had a chance to look at my December issue of Food & Wine yesterday. I think I need to quit saying that I’m not a “good baker” because these cookies really make me want to give them a try. Thanks for sharing these links!
