What the hell exactly are "Christmas Cookies"?

ipsedixit | Nov 13, 2011 12:12 PM

Excuse the (most likely) dumb questions, but when someone says, "I'm baking Christmas cookies" what do they mean?

Are there specific types of cookies for Christmas?

A particular way of making them?

Something so sinfully decadent that Mrs. Clause would never think of making at home for fear Santa would need a new red robe?

Or are they just cookies made in and around the 3rd to 4th week of December?

Do tell.
