“In my family, this is a once-a-year recipe for Christmas cookies. Two days before Christmas, as is tradition, we make a triple or quadruple batch, invite everyone over, and spend a few hours baking and decorating. The cookies themselves are highly acclaimed, especially when topped with a simple powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla frosting. Servings, yield, and times are all guesses.”
