    I've only been to one and it was great fun!  It was in PA about 4 hours from here.  I live very near Rosie actually - about 45 minutes.

    These candy cane cookies look familar. I can remember my grandmother making those (along with many other kinds of C'mas cookies) but of course back then she made them from scratch...they didn't have the dough in tubes like now.

    I could - I did them in the Recipe forum this year.  I could just do different cookies.  I have all of these links in a Word document so I wouldn't duplicate them.
