Fiskateer Holiday Cookie Recipes from the Past

I love holiday sweets and cookies. The looks, smells and tastes of cookies this time of the year.I love trying new recipes and sharing them with my family during the holidays. When DS was young we use to make sugar cookies and cut them into Christmas shapes, decorate them and give them as gifts.

Over the past few years, one of the Fiskateer Leads or possible one of the Fiskateers would post to the Fiskateer blog a request for Holiday Cookie Recipes. Each year I have saved all the Holiday Cookie Recipes that were posted on the Fiskateer blog as a result of these requests. I copied & pasted each recipe to a word document, formatted it, corrected any spelling errors (I hope I got them all) and saved them to my computer.

Starting in 2008, one of the Leads or possible one of the Fiskateers posted to the blog requesting Holiday Cookie Recipes. That year there were 29 cookie recipes posted. Did you know that Santa has a favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie? Here you'll find the recipes for: Gingersnaps, Snickerdoodles, Monster Cookies, Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies, Whoopie Pie, Chocolate Macaroons, Sugar Cookies, Whipped Shortbread and many more favorite cookie recipes.

In 2009, again someone posted to the blog requesting Favorite Holiday Cookie Recipes and once again I saved them to a word file. This year there was a huge response and there are 52 fabulous cookie recipes such as: Monster Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Candy Cane Cookies, Oatmeal Gingersnap, Black Forrest Cookie, Oreo Bon Bons, Chinese Chews and many more delicious cookie recipes.

This year Tami (one of the Lead Fiskateers) posted on the message board a request for Holiday Cookies. I emailed Tami and told her about my saving the cookies recipes from the past couple of years and she asked if I'd be interested in sharing them. I had posted last year that I would email the file to anyone who was interested and was shocked at the response. It was a lot of work but I send anyone who requested it my document. Tami suggested that I covert the document to a pdf format and share it on my blog. I've also added the recent Fiskateers Gifts from the Kitchen recipes that I've saved to my files. I'm waiting patiently for some new 2010 Favorite Cookie Recipes to fill the current blog post by Tami. Hopefully there will be some new recipes that I can save and later post here.

After several days of trying to figure out how to add the Fiskateer Favorite Cookie Recipes from 2008, 2009 and Fiskateers Gifts from the Kitchen 2010 to my blog, I finally figured out how to add the links. I hope that you all enjoy these recipes. Here they are:
