{competitive} cookie exchange

I happen to work in an office full of incredible cooks and bakers! We have our annual cookie exchange coming up and I made these chai cookies last year....

...and before I tried everyone else's I thought mine were quite good (and I still highly recommend!) . However when you are competing with lavender shortbread cookies served on an antique silver tray and the most beautifully executed linzer cookies it is very intimidating. So, I am asking for your help-what is your "go to" holiday cookie?

when the word competitive comes into anything kindof messes it up for me. I would not work well under pressure. My cookies would burn or something. sounds fun though!

Haha! I love that he asked you to make them. I think I imagine to competition in my head but still it is a lot of pressure:) Pam made three types last year and they were all to die for!
