This is just a few of the thousands of recipes I've posted on my site since 2006.  What I did in  2012 was post this list as a 'cookie a day 'til Christmas' list with some random cookies I had posted on An American Housewife.  If you need some ideas, you can check them out.  Most of these recipes have been mentioned 2 or 3 times on An American Housewife as I've made many of them since the early 1990's.  Some of these I don't personally make anymore, or make every few years.
