Santa has hit jackpot cookie heaven

The holiday season is a time for spending with family in the kitchen and the kids love to take part in the baking festivities.

Moderation, not deprivation

80% of the time we strive to eat healthy. Because we are human, the other 20% falls under eating in moderation. Go ahead and eat that cookie. The constant rebound of restricting food and then binging plays havoc on your body. It is much better to have a cookie occasionally, then to deprive yourself, feel sorry for yourself and then just eat the whole darn batch of cookies in one sitting. Take one cookie and savor each bite. Then you are done. If temptation plays a role, give the rest as gifts and store in the freezer out of temptations way.

We have listed these 60 cookie recipes from around the world in alphabetical order corresponding to country.
