One recipe and 3 Christmas cookies : Cool, Funny, Cute

Updated on November 20, 2012

I really love this idea. When I see the stores getting ready with their gorgeous Christmas trees, window decorations and special offers, I know Christmas is coming to town. Besides decorating the Christmas tree which was always one of my favorites things to do on Christmas, I pretty much enjoy baking and cooking, and cooking and baking. And, of course, decorating the Christmas cookies. And what gives me more joy than knowing I will be able to be versatile in my baking, when it comes to cookies, besides eating them, is knowing a little trick that will definitely save me so much time in enjoying that hot chocolate in front of the fireplace. And why I shouldn't take one recipe for a type of cookie and produce some more types of cookies?
