    [Entropy]'s Note:

    These cookies are what Christmas tastes like! This recipe makes a fairly big batch, which is perfect for sharing with friends and guests. If you like thick chewy cookies, it will make about 48. If you like them smaller or thin, it would be most practical to make a half batch, or you'll be cutting out cookies for the whole day! The prep time listed is approximate because the time involved is proportionate to the size of your cookies. You can also prepare the dough ahead of time, freeze it, then bake them later.
