perennial favorite christmas cookies

Have you been baking up a storm already? I've only just begun. I've been mostly making and freezing the dough so that when there's an event, I can bake the cookies morning of. As a Christmas present to Brother #3, I'm freezing assorted cookie dough balls so that he can have fresh baked cookies whenever the mood hits.

I was asked by The Chicago BFF what cookies I was baking this year. The list includes these:

Crack Toffee- this year I'm adding some pretzels on top. 
I like the addition as it balances out the sweetness with its
salty, crunchy presence.

White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Almond Roca Pretzel Cookies- my new favorite compost combo
(I'm really digging the pretzel crunch and salt, can you tell?)

What's on your list? If you care to share, I'd love to expand my cookie horizons!

Please be patient and wait the 2-3 minutes before putting them on, or else you'll get something like this—
