One of my favorite memories as a child around Christmas time was helping my mother decorate Christmas cookies. We had sugar cookies shaped like bells and Christmas Tree Anise cookies made from an old family recipe. Now, thanks to the internet and Google Trends we know what the favorite cookies are by state, including Arkansas and Texas.

Not only will we find out what types of cookies are the most popular but I also included a recipe for each type of favorite cookie from Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The biggest surprise in this list is Texas but then again maybe not. You'll understand that statement in just a minute.
