C is for Christmas Cookies

Pain-d'Épices Cookies

Chances are you already possess ample dog-eared, batter-splattered, much-beloved, better-break-out-the-sweatpants cookie recipes. Yet despite this cache of cookies held near and dear, you may find that your thoughts, on occasion, tend to stray—especially this time of year with seductive Christmas cookies beckoning from seemingly everywhere, the make-you-go-weak-in-the-knees potential looming large. We understand. Oh, do we understand. And because we tend to think that too much of a good thing can be really quite wonderful, we’re sharing those Christmas cookie recipes that have made us swoon in recent months. A full baker’s dozen, including roll-out and drop, fancy schmancy as well as reassuringly easy. They’re temptresses that have lured us not just from flirtation to infatuation but into creating a new cookie tradition. And that’s good enough for us. —Renee Schettler Rossi
