Christmas without Christmas cookies would be like Halloween without candy -- totally pointless. It's the one time a year you actually make some dough, exercise that rolling pin, and use those adorable cookie cutters you've accumulated over the years. It's a joyous, sugary, family fun-filled occasion, and this year, make it extra awesome by following some of these colorful Christmas cookie recipes. Decorating never tasted so good. Happy, happy, merry, merry!
