    If you’re not the most accomplished baker, but like the idea of whipping up a homemade treat for family and friends during the holidays, these are the cookies for you.

    Peanut butter cookies — with that iconic crosshatch pattern pressed into their tops — are a holiday classic for many Americans.

    Dear Annie: We host Thanksgiving dinner for my husband’s family every year, and I enjoy doing so, but I have a problem with my stepson’s wife. They have not lived together for almost three years, but they still travel together regularly, including visits home.
