It’s that time of year again, Christmas cookie time! I like to break it up into a few days, so I don’t get overwhelmed. Today I made the doughs and will put them in the freezer until I am ready to shape and bake sometime next week. I made a basic vanilla sugar cookie dough to be rolled and cut with cookie cutters, a gingerbread dough for a Christmas favorite, a lemon sugar dough for spritz cookies that will get a lemon icing and finally a cocoa dough to be sliced into discs and dipped half in dark chocolate half in white and topped with crushed candy cane.
A delectable variety for my cookie gift giving!
I used the basic sugar cookie recipe found in this months Martha Stewart Living magazine.
