I've found that some of the nicest cookies/treats to make usually have the best ingredients in them, so I'd say invest in some really good quality nuts (pistachios, walnuts, cashews) and bake them into a simple shortbread recipe.   I don't usually use a recipe, just take 1 part butter/shortening, 1 and 1/2 parts sugar, and 2 parts flour - add milk to mix, a dash of salt, and an egg if you'd like it a bit richer.  A small bit of baking powder is ok too, but not necessary.  You can chill a 'stick' of the stuff, and lop off 1" pieces and bake them on an oiled pan.  They're dead easy and so damned good.  These are sometimes refered to as 'nougat' cookies, as far as I remember, and they're great to dip in chocolate, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Here is a really easy but great recipe that my mom makes, everyone loves it, but then again my family is fanatical about anything peanut butter and chocolate.

You take two Ritz crackers and put creamy peanut butter in between them to make a sandwich. Then dip the whole thing into chocolate (she usually uses the chocolate from the store that is meant for dipping things, but you can just melt chocolate chips), put on wax paper and refrigerate until cooled. They are so DECADENT!

If you really want to get fancy, after you dip them in chocolate, dip one side in crushed peanuts or mini chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless!

This year I'm making vanilla liquer for everyone, and obsene gingerbread cookies!
Check out my blog post about this cute cookbook I got to review: the Cookie Sutra...

answer if kids walk by the computer screen: she's tickling his feet!

Okay, that's freaking hilarious.  I once received Kama Sutra chocolates (yeah, they were pretty graphic...) but these cookies beat those Smiley

Do you mean buckeye candies?  If so, check out the following link.  IMHO, they're balls of peanut butter fudge semi-dipped in chocolate.

Ahhhh ok, looks yummy Smiley
I'm from Trinidad, and for Christmas, we make a heavy rum cake that's got fruit in it (preserves). The fruits are soaked (some people soak them months before) in rum. My Mom makes one that's pretty heavy on the alcohol, and sometimes even makes me a bit tipsy to the head, wheras my brother makes one that's quite tasty, but not strong on the alcohol. If anyone's interested I can get Mom's own, and start kissin' up to Brian to try and get his?

I've got a really good Trini (coconut) sweetbread recipe. It's not really a Christmas recipe, and it's not like the sweet dinner rolls here that we find in the groceries.. . it's got the texture more like a banana bread/those kindsa breads, and is baked with regular grated coconut (not the sweetened one), along with some fuit preserves. It's really easy, and my Dad and I love it (of course, I grew up with the stuff too!), but . .. if anyone's interested, I'll dig that up as well!!

Aargh, this is making me hungry!

I make these little wreath cookie things - cornflakes mixed with marshmallow and green food colouring, and you squidge the mixture into little rings and decorate them with glace cherries (for berries) and silver balls (for spanglyness). Easy but a bit sticky and messy to make!
