Tis' the season to share. And that's what we're doing. We are sharing your Christmas cookie recipes. Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away and that's when we do our baking with family, so why not share your delicious Christmas cookie recipes.

Recently, we asked on our Facebook page to share your favorite Christmas Cookie recipe. Everyone loves making cookies this time of the year. I remember baking with my Nana and Aunt every year making Christmas cookie cut-outs. We would ice them with pink and green icing. Christmas trees, angels, Santa, and so many more. It is such an awesome tradition and great memory that I passed on to my daughter.

My Mom made her "famous" chocolate chip cookies from scratch. "Famous" to the neighbors and friends of Quakertown, PA (LOL). She never used a recipe so I can't share it with you. Every year she would throw something different into her chocolate chip cookie batch. I remember helping her, she would cover the the entire kitchen with little balls of chocolate chip cookies. And, that smell, I will never forget it.

Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
