Every year I say I will bake lots of cookies for Christmas, and I manage to make one or two recipes at the most. But this year I'm actually having a Christmas party with seventy-five or so friends, family and neighbours coming, so with my daughter Emma's help we've managed to bake about 30 dozen cookies.

Most of these recipes can be frozen and some, like the shortbread can be kept in an airtight container for a couple of weeks -- so you can plan ahead to make them for teachers, friends, neighbors, and family, or just make a batch to pass the time on a wintry afternoon.
