Christmas Cookie Recipes
Every year at Christmas time, I bake. We have many friends and neighbors that I would like to give something, and a card just doesn't cut it. An economical solution for me it to make homemade cookies.
The first thing I do is gather all my recipes together and create a master shopping list. Next, I take one day and make the batters. On this day the oven doesn't even get turned on. I make the recipe, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, write the name to describe what kind it is and then refrigerate it. I find this is a real time saver. I drag out all the ingredients and measuring cups. I just have to wash the bowl and beaters in between each batch.
On my "baking" day, the first thing I do is take unrefrigerated dough out of the refrigerator so it comes to room temperature. Then I baking my refrigerated doughs. This is the time consuming part, but the kids help, so we are able to make some fun out of it. By the time I get done pressing, cutting out, or shaping the refrigerated doughs, the room temperature doughs have come to the right temperature and consistency.
These are the kinds of cookies I include on the plates:
Of course all of these are not specific kinds of Christmas cookies, but my friends seem to really like them.
