Winner Penney L. Haney of Kenosha described these cookies: "Oh, the

aroma! Dad knew his 'girls' had been baking as soon as he stepped in

the back door, brushing snowflakes from his coat. He warmed his hands

over the hot oven, slowly recovering feeling in his fingertips, numb

from stringing red, yellow, blue, green and white lights in the pines

in the yard. His chore and our special treat combined each year to

mark the beginning of our holiday preparations.

"While chatting to Mom about trying to locate the single,

burned-out bulb that had kept an entire strand out, he watched me,

his tiny daughter, with not so dexterous fingers, shaping dough into

big marbles. I had to kneel on a wooden chair to reach the table,

with Mom's brightly-colored apron wrapped around me nearly twice,

held together in back by a giant safety pin."
