    Christmas cookie recipes

    Anybody want to share recipes for favourite Christmas cookies?

    We always make the same cookies every year, and I'd like to try some different ones (but not too complicated). Perhaps this thread could be stickied if there's enough interest.

    When I get home I will have to check my recipes.. My mom used to always make Spritz Cookies, (ya know the kind you use a cookie press with) and I started making those again last year. They are super easy, and my girls loved being able to help make the shaped with the press! I usually do some fudge as well and some other goodies (bar cookies and chocolate covered pretzels.) I will post those recipes if you like too!

    These are the spice cookies I make every year:

    Preheat oven to 350.

    2 c flour
    2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp ground cloves
    3/4 tsp salt
    3/4 c crystallized ginger
    1 c brown sugar
    1 1/2 sticks butter, room temperature
    1 egg
    1/4 c molasses

    Combine first 6 ingredients and whisk to blend.
    Beat crystallized ginger, butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
    Add egg and molasses, beat until blended.
    Gradually add flour mixture and blend.
    Refrigerate for one hour.

    Butter 2 cookie sheets.
    Roll balls of dough in white sugar.
    Bake 12 minutes.

    Can the spice or sugar cookies be made using shape cutters?
