Christmas cookie recipes

Merry Christmas and happy holidays! One of the best things during this season of the year is the baking of family tradition cookies. With just a little flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, an egg, and some flavorings, voila, these delicious cookies are made.

Here are a few cookie baking notes. If you refrigerate the cookie dough at least an hour or two before using, you will have a better flavored cookie. Thin cookies will bake more crisply than fatter ones. Using unbleached flour will give you cookies like your grandmother used to make. Use only real butter and the best ingredients your budget can afford. Christmas cookie time comes only once a year, so don’t skimp on what goes into them. Happy baking and may you find a cookie recipe below that you might consider adding to your recipes.
