Picking a favorite cookie seems like a nearly impossible task, but somehow every state in the US has managed to have a different cookie listed as their state’s top cookie. Some remain loyal to the original chocolate chip cookie and sugar cookie while other states prefer a nontraditional cookie.

Floridians have chosen their favorite cookie to serve at holidays is the Key Lime Pie cookie or the Key Lime Pie sandwich cookies filled with a tangy cream. The cookies are a soft buttery graham cookie with a key lime-flavored icing on top or cream in the middle.

Thanksgiving gatherings in South Florida may be different than in other parts of the United States just in part due to the glorious weather!  Bright skies, pleasant climate, and cool breezes are easy justifications to stay out of the kitchen and go outside with visiting family and friends.
