It’s no surprise that cookie baking is such a popular activity during the holiday season: cookies are fun to make with friends and family, they make great gifts, and they’re a delicious dessert for holiday meals.
I went a little crazy with a tried and true sugar cookie recipe this past weekend (see the cookie explosion below). I cut letters from the cookie dough and decorated each one with frosting and Christmas-colored sprinkles. It was fun, relaxing, and, I have to admit, it really did put me in the holiday spirit.
