Christmas Cookies

For several years I have made Christmas cookies or treats for the neighbors and found that it is a great way to meet the neighbors that tend to hide out in their houses and to visit with the ones we know.

I usually attach a card with scripture related to the birth of Jesus. I have had several previous neighbors ask where we attend church or other related questions, which provides a great starting point for sharing the gospel with them in later conversations.

While browsing for cookie recipes earlier this week, I found an idea from Country Living (via Pinterest) to use rubber stamps on the cookies.

I tried some of the more detailed Christmas stamps I had, but all of the detail was lost after baking. The simple star stamp worked best.

I also recommend dipping the stamp in flour occasionally to keep it from tearing the dough.

The plain sugar cookies were a bit boring and flavorless, so I dipped them in chocolate sauce and then coconut. After a couple of trial cookies, I found they tasted best if they were sprinkled with sugar before baking too.
