Christmas cookies. Those two words evoke all kinds of memories for everyone. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas. You can't watch TV, go to the grocery store or open a magazine without being bombarded by Christmas cookie images.
Today, I'm including my favorite recipes all in one spot for your cookie baking pleasure.The picture above is homemade sugar cookies, cut into stars and dusted with powdered sugar for a magical Christmas effect. The only secret to any cookie recipe is measuring correctly. Your dry ingredients should be lightly spooned into a dry cup measure. Liquid ingredients measured in a wet measure while it is sitting flat on the counter or table. Yes, a tablespoon too much flour or liquid can ruin a cookie.
Watch this video to learn how to properly measure flour.

Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I purchased your Cheap, Fast, Good! cookbook about 6 months ago and I use it weekly. I enjoy cooking and have used many cookbooks, cooking magazines and Internet cooking sites to glean inspiration for feeding my family well. Your cookbook has beaten them all hands down. I have particularly enjoyed the chapter on big batch cooking. It gives me so many options and everything is so quick!
