Last week I gave you my cookie manifesto (along with my favorite oatmeal cookie with fudge on top). Cookie time is now — school lunchboxes and bake sales bring out everyone's best cookie recipes. What's yours? Do you have a cookie recipe you save for this time of year? We want to hear all about it.
I have this one cookie recipe that I save for fall. It's the perfect cookie to accompany a mug of tea, and it's different enough to be a big hit among more ordinary fare. The cookie is a little pinwheel of buttery dough and a figgy filling, flavored delicately with anise. They're totally fall — they belong to this time of year.

What about you? What's your very, very, very favorite cookie? Care to share the recipe with us?
