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."
