Just wanted to say that I miss seeing you on TV and pray that God will open the door for you to be back on soon. I use your recipes often and wonder how you are doing. Whatever people want to think we have all said things that we later have regretted. I know that I still stick me foot in my mouth, unfortunately! Thank you for being a wonderful woman of character and not lying but telling the truth! There are those of us that support you and love you. Hope that you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

Paula, thank you so much for sharing all these cookie recipes. I printed several to try for my family. Two of my three grandchildren want to help make cookies this year and the little guy who is 10 years old wants to make a gingerbread house. Be thinking about us while we are making memories. Happy Holidays to you and your family. We are all so lucky to have you as a cooking friend. Another country cook, Mary Lou Cordell

Looking for a cookie recipe that I had at a friends house. It was a sugar cookie dipped in white chocolate with crushed candy canes on top. I was told it was a Paula Deen recipe but I can't seem to find it! Any ideas? And no it is not Meemaw's Kitcheb Sink Cookie - these were definitely a sugar cookie!
