40 cookie recipes perfect for the holidays!

Did you know that, according to culinary historians, the first historic record of cookies was their use as test cakes? A small amount of cake batter was baked to test the oven temperature.

(Thanks to my dad and his subscription to the What's Cooking America e-newsletters for that little factoid!)
