Christmas trees and bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies..."

I've always enjoyed decorating cookies at Christmas, not only because I get to eat all the ones that turn out less-than-perfect, but also because I never tire of turning a simple and unadorned cookie into an individual piece of art.

Here's the first 5 dozen, all dressed up and ready to be boxed! Now, anyone want to come help wash dishes? There might be a few less-than-perfect cookies in it for you...
