holiday cookie recipes and helpful tips

But first - the tools!   

A cookie press with various template inserts is a must have and great fun for kids of all ages.  Secondly - gather an assortment of cookie cutters including the gingerbread man.  Lastly, a good stand mixer and some bowls with lids that are refrigerator safe - because you can pre-make the batter for later baking.
