Christmas shortbread cookie ideas?

bythebay | Jul 5, 2012 09:57 PM

Is it wrong that I'm already thinking about Christmas?

I just learned how to make shortbread cookies, and thanks to tips from here and elsewhere on the Web, I'm happy with how they're coming out now. I tried a few variations/embellishments like dipping them in chocolate, making lemon ones and dipping them in white chocolate and they came out really good. I've also seem people add lavender, things like that.

For Christmas, what interesting holiday/wintery flavors are there that could be added to the cookie itself? And what embellishments could be added? I'm trying to think of something beyond a basic cookie shaped like a Christmas tree topped with some sprinkles or plain icing.
