Personal Notes:
This is my favorite cookie to make at Christmas.
I like to make palm trees for Mark, doctors or bones for Craig, or just decorate the 'men' in a personalized way. Ben got a bunch of men with 'D's on their shirts after his early acceptance to Dartmouth. Matt's cookies wore jersey #30.
I could go on, but I'll leave you to think of your own personalized designs....
