     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.”
