There are also a few items that need special tools that most people won't have and won't purchase just for one cookie recipe. This is definitely holiday-themed and would be a good cookie for cookie-swap starters or a hostess gift.

This is a great book. The recipes are easy to follow, and the results are lovely. A great book for when you need a change in holiday (or anytime, really) cookies or are feeling creative. :)

Lots of good recipes to try. Some will be a bit time consuming, but they look they will be worth it. There are also some good ideas for presentation and decorating.
