Cream cheese contributes to the rich taste of these melt-in-your-mouth cookies shared by Julie Brunette of Green Bay, Wisconsin. "They have such nice flavor, you can skip the frosting and sprinkle them with colored sugar for a change," she suggests.
I've used this recipe for almost 40 years and love it because it's a little different than most. My mom always made Santa cookies, and we'd put them into little clear bags tied with ribbon to hang on the tree.—Ann Bush, Colorado City, Colorado
Also among the "treasures" at our pirate theme party were these yummy soft cookies. They have a mellow honey-lemon flavor and a vibrant almond icing. For a fun Polynesian look, I used pineapple and palm tree cookie cutters to shape them.
Hop aboard this sugar cookie sleigh— it comes complete with Santa, a team of sweet reindeer (including Rudolph, of course) and a wintry wonderland scene!
Our CW kitchen staff reined in the idea for this dashing accent for a buffet table or a mantel. It's fun to fix...so you can deliver one to your decor in merry fashion.
