Time to start thinking about holiday baking and candy making.
This was last year's round up (which links back to previous years).
A few things to add from last year:
Reindeer Cookies using a chocolate sugar cookie recipe (recipe is on Domino Sugar site)
Rich and Dark Fudge Tassies - very chocolatey!
Drop Sugar Cookies (recipe is on Domino Sugar site)
Caramel and chocolate dipped pretzel rods and caramel covered chocolate dipped Lorna Doones using the caramel recipe from Chocolate Covered Caramels (I overcooked the caramel the year I took that lousy picture)
Candy-Cane Twists - an old, old recipe of mine that is a pain in the behind but so cute
South Seas Cookies - these were a big hit last year. I used my homemade caramel to make them
Butterhorns - another old recipe I brought out of retirement
These are recipes that I made in 2010 that might be good for the holidays too:
Lime Cooler Cookies
White Chocolate Dried Cherry (or Craisin) Cookies (SO GOOD!)
Big Soft Ginger Cookies (if you don't feel like making gingerbread men but you want something spicy)
Big Sugar Cookies - I'm definitely making these with Christmas sprinkles
Icebox Cookies - this is a great basic cookie that can be doctored up for the holidays
Cherry Chip Bars
