Make everyone’s holiday treat baskets extra special by making them holiday cookie recipes in a variety of special flavors designed just for them.
Tips for Baking Big Batches
Holidays require big batch most of the time. We can do that in such a way as to not make ourselves crazy.
Do double or triple recipes whenever possible. Split those big batches up among several folks or care packages.
Make smaller cookies. Get double the cookies with the same amount of dough. And give folks a wider range of cookies in small bites for baskets, buffets, and packages.
Figure out the best work flow for yourself and your kitchen. Mix up dry ingredients the night before baking. Make the next dough while the last tray of cookies are in the oven, etc.
Cut Out Cookies
The holiday season just screams for cookies cut out into shapes and decorated for eating and gift giving. The making of these cookies is often a fun family tradition that makes the season complete.
Chocolate is always in season, after all. Make all your chocolohics happy with these tasty variations.

December is a month of strong spices both for flavor and warmth. These cookies provide both in tasty and giveable packages.
Hearty and filling, oatmeal cookies ship well and pack into lunch boxes easily too.
