Christmas Cookies

These sweet treats are easy to make and pretty enough to be decorations.
Cynthia Ann Briscoe

Cookies are among our favorite holiday treats, and they're great to share as gifts too. These traditional Christmas recipes utilize both a refrigerated and a nonrefrigerated dough. The Linzer Cookies are decorative sandwiches shaped with a star or round cookie cutter. Beautiful and buttery, they are perfect for a holiday tea. For families on the go, Lemon Icebox Cookies with four variations are the solution. The easy dough is refrigerated so you can slice and bake them when you?re ready.
