Christmas Cookie Ornaments

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