Anyone up for a cookie exchange?

Since I no longer work in an environment where we have a lot of people who can bake cookies that we share with one another right before the holidays I thought perhaps we could each post our favorite recipe for a virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange.

This recipe sounds fantastic Carole - like something I might have seen in my Victorian era cookbooks. I am excited to try it.

I'm sure you'll love 'em Tori...

My village is awash with cachi (persimmons) that are rapidly ripening at the moment. I adore them, but they are about a zillion calories so got to be careful! (sigh....) Shhh
