Recipe News: Christmas cookie recipes

"It's Christmas cookie time, when millions of home bakers pull out the mixer, cookie cutters and decorating supplies for the annual extravaganza of edible good cheer. If you're a sane individual who sprinkles colored sugar on your cookies and calls it a day, you can stop reading right now.

If, on the other hand, you are a crazy person who decides that elaborately decorated cookies are an essential part of the holiday experience - the kind of baker who stays up until 3 a.m., tweezers in hand, placing gold dragees on a gingerbread reindeer - honey, come sit next to me.

I realize I could make hundreds of gorgeous, sophisticated cookies in the time it takes to create a handful of decorated cutouts. But one big, beautiful cookie on top of the stocking is worth two dozen rum balls in my book. I've picked up a few tricks along the way, and share in the spirit of the season. Merry Craziness to you."

includes recipes for:

  • Viennese Chocolate Pepper Cookies

  • Aunt Helen's Chinese Chews

  • Florentines
