Now with the Thanksgiving leftovers (mostly) finished it's time to start thinking about a new round of seasonally appropriate recipes: Christmas or Holiday Cookies.

Offering up a plate of really good, homemade holiday cookie recipes can help navigate the gauntlet of neighborhood tree trimming and office parties. Plus, having "cut and bake" cookie dough in the freezer is perfect for those "drop in" guests at this time of year or as a late-afternoon snack or tea following a shopping trip to the mall. And don't forget cookie swaps! Creativity always wins extra points.
