what kind of cookies should we bake first this year?

Wayfair.com and Peapod.com sent me a little package today, filled with supplies to get our holiday baking off to a festive start. Needless to say, on a wet-snowy-rainy-icky afternoon, coming home to a package on the stoop was super exciting for my kids. (OK, fine, for me too.) 

One thought we'd been gifted a puppet, that just needed a face...

The other excitedly transformed the cardboard box into a rocket ship. Yes, people, that is a rocket ship.

Tell me I lack imagination, but I was thrilled with the actual contents. Now we just have to figure out what to bake! Our holiday go-to's are always: Gingerbread, Iced Sugar Cookies, and last year we whipped up these demure-looking Orange Cardamom Cookies that were amazing. I also love the Cranberry-Pistachio Biscotti we made a few years back. What's your favorite holiday cookie? I'm always looking for new ideas, so link up your favorite recipe here in the comments, and maybe we'll start the baking season off with a batch of your family's favorite!
