Kathy’s favorite recipes

This time of year when winter is approaching and cooler tempertures are in the air gets me in the mood to bake. I thought I would devote this category to some of my favorite recipes. The first one I am posting is a cookie since you can never go wrong with that. Bake these up and enjoy:)
