Christmas Cookie Puzzles | Choose cutters with simple shapes; they're easier to handle and less likely to break. If you want to make small puzzles, cut dough into 4-inch squares, and use a single cookie cutter to punch out the center of each square while still hot from the oven. Working quickly, cut lines from edges of square to form puzzle pieces. Store icing in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Hidden Kiss Cookies | We love using mint kisses and candy cane kisses for the holidays.

Citrus Mints | Use powdered sugar to keep the dough from sticking to your hands.

Sorghum-Cider Punch | Fizzy hard cider and spicy ginger ale add a subtle effervescence. Start with chilled beverages so it's nice and refreshing, and consider adding a decorative ice ring to keep it that way.
