Holiday Cookies

To save time and still make a variety of cookies for holiday celebrations, I get creative with a big batch of basic refrigerator cookie dough. I slice some to make round cookies and top with colored sugars…I roll some into balls and coat them with coconut or chopped nuts…I use a portion for thumbprint cookies…and the rest I wrap around fillings like dates, cherries and candies. —Marilyn B., Norwalk, Ohio
