You can make these goodies for the Christmas tree ahead of time! Simply whip up the cookies and store them plain in your freezer. Come Christmas, you can fix homemade frosting and decorate. Then tie on ribbons and hang the shapes on your evergreen. You can also create these treats for eating! If you do, start them from scratch at holiday time and keep them in an airtight container. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
