For many families, cookie recipes are just what holidays are all about in addition to one or two special dishes that make the holiday meal. Without those special treats, the lights don’t shine as bright, carols sound off key and everyone goes from nice to naughty. No doubt cooks everywhere are up to their elbows in flour and spice, as they turn out savory treats for Christmas and enjoy every minute of the time spent baking. In the words of Martha Stewart: “I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how seriously you approach your whole life.”
