This is one of my 4 holiday recipes from Real Simple that I make every year. All delicious! See Gingersnaps, Oatmeal & Pie Spice Cookies and White Chocolate Snowballs for other recipes. I always make all 4 recipes at the same time since they have the same base ingredients, which makes it easy to make A LOT OF cookies and sweets!
