It's the most wonderful time of year. As the days get shorter and weather turns colder, many of us look to familiar family traditions to celebrate. (Because is it really the holiday season without decorating the tree or baking those special holiday cookies for Santa?)

Back in the kitchen, we're reminded of all things ooey, gooey, and chewy. Nothing beats the sweet, delicious smell of freshly baked cookies straight from the oven.

Enjoy!
