Winner Shere Case of Hickory Hills describes her cookie entry: "Holiday
preparation usually starts in September and continues until the night
before Christmas. I have been doing this for almost 18 years, and each
year I add more recipes. This particular cookie, passed on to me by my
sister- in-law, Diana Forkash of Wisconsin, ranks among the favorites of
the family and friends. It looks absolutely gorgeous on a plate, tastes
wonderful and is absolutely the easiest thing to make. There is no baking
time involved, and you can sit down on the job and enjoy doing them."
