* Rolled cookies for the Christmas holidays — I almost never make
these cookies except at Christmas time. They just seem to be
Christmas cookies.
(I did make a batch of heart shaped ones last Valentine’s day for my
then-fiance.) I usually make these cookies in Christmas shapes and
frost them with green and red frosting. This is a good recipe for
kids to help out with.

* It helps to keep most of the dough in the refrigerator while you
are cutting shapes. It cuts much better when it is cold.

* These are time-consuming and fairly difficult, but worth it.

: Difficulty: moderate.
: Time: 30 minutes preparation, overnight chill, 1 hour cutting and
