A Holiday Pie

We have an unusual holiday dessert tradition.

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a marathon baking session with Mom or the kids, whipping up our favorite holiday cookie recipes for gifts and exchanges.

Cookies make the perfect gift — they’re easy and inexpensive, and they’re homemade, showing the recipient that your gift came from the heart. But if we’re honest, how many times have we been disappointed (or perhaps made a little squeamish) by a treat box with less-than-appetizing nuggets inside? It’s always the thought that counts, but if you want to turn your homemade cookies into professional-quality treats your loved ones will treasure, follow these tips. Sometimes one small detail will turn a bake-sale cookie into a bakery-case masterpiece. So go ahead and knock their socks off this year!

Here are three of my favorite Christmas cookies recipes that make supreme gifts.
